Welding operations

(OP)
What is the definition of welding operations? I have seen it used in some codes but not defined. Do any codes define it? I believe it is just the process of welding or does it include the grinding and other activities between passes as well?

RE: Welding operations

Welding Operations is from start (cleaning, preheat) to actual welding using a welding process or processes (interpass temperature, cleaning (if applicable) and the completion of welding (cooling or after PWHT).

RE: Welding operations

OP, there are several codes or specs that define welding operations. In my company, we perform a significant amount of structural welding, which is controlled by AWS D1.1. Have a look at AWS' website for more information. You can find several free resources on the internet for welding operations and what is contained in them, however, @metengr defined it pretty well in his response. Hope this helps.
