Design Guidelines

(Reprinted from Design of Weldments - Omer W. Blodgett)




For same strength, longer leg size cost more. Use smaller leg size with longer length.

Use Symmetric sections for Automatic welding

Design Simple. Save Welding cost

Use minimum amount of weld metal

Easy accessability to welding

Arrange the welding layout which would reduce welding cost

Under light load, use intermittent weld in place of continuous weld

Weld in the section with least thickness
