The allowable shear stress for fillet welds on non-tubular steel structures in AWS D1:1 Table 2.2 is .30 x filler tensile strength. Since this is an allowable value for buildings I presume there is a factor of safety inherent in this formula. Does anyone know what factor of safety is applied for determining the allowable in this case?
