AWS: American Welding Society

AWS, the American Welding Society, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards that apply to welding and related joining disciplines. Headquartered in Miami, United States, AWS standards are spread by its over 65,000 worldwide members, a significant portion of which are located within the United States. AWS is heavily involved in educational initiatives, with many conferences around the world, student scholarships and a wide variety of courses. AWS also serves as the administrator for the U.S. TAGs (United States Technical Advisory Group) to ISO/TCs 44 and 167 (International Organization for Standardization/Technical Committee) and to many of the subcommittees for ISO/TC 44.

Below are AWS's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.

AWS D1.1/D1.1M:2020

Structural Welding Code - Steel

This code covers the welding requirements for any type of welded structure made from the commonly used carbon and low-alloy constructional steels. Clauses 1 through 11 constitute a body of rules for the regulation of welding in steel construction. There are eight normative and eleven informative annexes in this code. A Commentary of the code is included with the document.

This handy reference is packed with the most useful charts and drawings relevant to arc welding steel. Spiral binding lays flat or props open tent style for convenient viewing in any work or study situation. Includes classification. size. amperes. and deposition rates for selected SMAW. GMAW. and FCAW electrodes. Also. weld positions. pipe size and wall thicknesses. basic welding symbols and locations. and guide to electrode conditioning and storage.


AWS D14.1-D14.1M-2005

AWS D14.1/D14.1M:2005 SPECIFICATION FOR WELDING OF INDUSTRIAL AND MILL CRANES AND OTHER MATERIAL HANDLING EQUIPMENT

Requirements are presented for the design and fabrication of constructional steel weldments that are used in industrial and mill cranes. lifting devices and other material handling equipment. Requirements are also included for modification. weld repair. and postweld treatments of new and existing weldments. Filler metal and welding procedure guidelines are recommended for the applicable base metals. which are limited to carbon and low-alloy steels. Allowable unit stresses are provided for weld metal and base metal for various cyclically loaded joint designs.


AWS D17.1/D17.1M:2017-AMD1

Specification for Fusion Welding for Aerospace Applications

This specification provides the general welding requirements for welding aircraft and space hardware. It includes but is not limited to the fusion welding of aluminum-based, nickel-based, iron-based, cobalt-based, magnesium-based, and titanium-based alloys using electric arc and high energy beam processes. There are requirements for welding design, personnel and procedure qualification, inspection, and acceptance criteria for aerospace, support, and non-flight hardware. Additional requirements cover repair welding of existing hardware.


AWS D1.3/D1.3M:2018

Structural Welding Code - Sheet Steel

This code covers the requirements associated with welding sheet steel having a minimum specified yield point no greaterthan 80 ksi [550 MPa]. The code requirements cover any welded joint made from the commonly used structural quality low-carbon hot rolled and cold rolled sheet and strip steel with or without zinc coating (galvanized). Clause 1 includes general provisions, Clause 4 design, Clause 5 prequalification, Clause 6 qualification, Clause 7 fabrication, and Clause 8 inspection.


AWS A2.4:2020

Standard Symbols for Welding, Brazing, and Nondestructive Examination

This standard establishes a method for specifying certain welding, brazing, and nondestructive examination information by means of symbols, including the examination method, frequency, and extent. Detailed information and examples are provided for the construction and interpretation of these symbols.


AWS D17.1/D17.1M:2017-AMD2

Specification For Fusion Welding For Aerospace Applications

Amendment 2: This specification provides the general welding requirements for welding aircraft and space hardware. It includes but is not limited to the fusion welding of aluminum-based, nickel-based, iron-based, cobalt-based, magnesium-based, and titanium-based alloys using electric arc and high energy beam processes. There are requirements for welding design, personnel and procedure qualification, inspection, and acceptance criteria for aerospace, support, and non-flight hardware. Additional requirements cover repair welding of existing hardware. A commentary for the specification is included.


AWS D15.1/D15.1M:2019

Railroad Welding Specification for Cars and Locomotives

This specification establishes minimum welding standards for the manufacture and maintenance of railcars, locomotives, and their components, intended for North American railroad service. Clauses 4 through 17 cover the general requirements for welding in the railroad industry. Clauses 18 through 23 cover specific requirements for the welding of base metals thinner than 1/8 in [3 mm].


AWS D9.1/D9.1M:2018

Sheet Metal Welding Code

This code covers the arc and braze welding requirements for nonstructural sheet metal fabrications using the commonly welded metals available in sheet form. Requirements and limitations governing procedure and performance qualification are presented, and workmanship and inspection standards are supplied. The informative annexes provide useful information on materials and processes.
