We received drawings with PJP-FS in the weld tail of a 1 1/2" plate "T" joint. When I called the engineer he indicated that he wanted a partial joint penetration full strength weld. I wanted to know what size bevel and fillet combination would achieve full strength and he indicated that I should just refer to the ASME code for the answer. I cannot find anywhere that indicates what size weld is required to achieve partial joint penetration full strength.
