Consider a thirty foot long, W12x30. Must fit into an existing, occupied, office building and bear on masonry walls 28'-8" apart. The contractor wants to cut the beam in half (mid-span), erect in place, and full-pen weld all around.
Considering all weld conditions acceptable, does the full-penetration weld qualify as full restoration of the original section properties?
