Undercut D1.1, 2010

Undercut D1.1, 2010

I have a question concerning item number 7, undercut in table 6.1 for statically loaded nontubular connections. I am not clear on the maximum depth of undercut for item (A). It looks like 1/32" for material less than 1" thick but then it states 1/16" is allowed up to 2" in 12". Could anyone clarify this?

RE: Undercut D1.1, 2010

Undercut of the lesser depth is permitted with no limitation on the length of undercut. Deeper undercut is permitted as long as there isn't too much , i.e., not too much accumulated length per unit of length (12 inch lengths per unit).

Best regards - Al

and yes, 1/16" of undercut looks like the Grand Canyon. I suggest that you accept the weld, and get rid of the welder that did such terrible quality work.
