I am trying to find a clause in AWS D1.1 that provides the minimum length of a fillet weld. I looked in Clause 2 and found the requirement about minimum in design space but I need the reference to that I think should be in Clause 5 that tells me that a fillet weld can only be made so long depending on it's size. I seem to recall that there is a requirement like that but I cannot find it. I have a case where an engineer wants me to place a 5/16" fillet weld 1" long.
