Intermittent Fillet Welds D14.1

Intermittent Fillet Welds D14.1

Intermittent Fillet Welds D14.1

I am trying to understand what the correct practice is for intermittent welds for a non-primary member.

The code in question reads:
"6.5.1 ...Welds shall be made on both sides of the joint for at least 25% of its length."

Does the 25% mean that the total length of the welds on both sides =25%
That the amount of weld on one side = 25% and the welds are adjacent to each other along the member.

Thanks for you help.

This would also contradict what was stated on thread178-45263: allowable spacing between two ajacent welds

RE: Intermittent Fillet Welds D14.1

I don't have the referenced Code book, but, I wanted to point out that the thread you referenced is not talking about intermittent welds, it's talking about the proximity of two butt welds.

ansi-aws d1.1 2006 2.11.2

2.11.2 Maximum Spacing of Intermittent Welds General. Except as may be provided by or, the maximum longitudinal spacing
of intermittent welds connecting a plate component to
other components shall not exceed 24 times the thickness
of the thinner plate nor exceed 12 in. [300 mm]. The longitudinal
spacing between intermittent fillet welds connecting
two or more rolled shapes shall not exceed 24 in.
[600 mm].
