AWS Structural Welding Code for Steel AWS D1.1:2020 contains the requirements for fabricating and erecting welded steel structures. In addressing these requirements, this code takes a comprehensive approach in outlining specific connections and welds, such as groove welds, fillet welds, and plug and slot welds, and it also touches upon numerous other considerations, such as fatigue stress design parameters and prequalified welding procedure specifications (WPSs).
This code covers the welding requirements for any type of welded structure made from the commonly used carbon and low-alloy constructional steels.
