Weld Deposition rate in AWS D1.1 & D1.8?

Weld Deposition rate in AWS D1.1 & D1.8?

Weld Deposition rate in AWS D1.1 & D1.8?

Hello Gents,

I am newer to Welding. I was going through AWS D1.1 & D1.8 to check the values and ranges for:
1. "Weld Deposition Rate" for SMAW & FCAW.
2. Weld Single pass thickness for SMAW & FCAW processes

As-usually I checked it in several clauses but due to lack of knowledge to AWS codes I am unable to find it. Is there any body to help out me to solve these tiny mysteries.

RE: Weld Deposition rate in AWS D1.1 & D1.8?

not sure about d1.8. But for d1.1 single pass thickness maximums are in table 3.7. Deposition rates aren't limited under d1.1. I would think that's because deposition volume is a function of amperage and technique. It would be difficult to quantify maximums or minimums.
