As per AWS D1.1 , for Welded Restoration of Base Metal with Mislocated Holes.
"One reduced section tension test (weld metal);two side bend tests (weld metal); and three CVN tests of the HAZ (coarse grained area) removed from sample welds shall be used to demonstrate that the mechanical properties of the repaired area conform to the specified requirements of the base metal" Is there any requirement like this for repair of weld joints ?
