Welding Symbols and Codes

“Welding Symbols and Codes” describes how welding blueprints represent welding requirements. A weld is represented in a blueprint using a welding symbol. Welding symbols, which were created by the American Welding Society, include a reference line, arrow element, weld symbol or symbols, tail, and weld dimensions. When needed, the welding symbol will also have supplementary symbols and finish symbols. The welding symbol includes various components on the reference line to show the characteristics of the weld and provide specific instructions to the welder. After taking this class, users should be able to explain the many types of welding symbols and their characteristics, as well as the welding codes and specifications used in the welding industry.
