Exploring Weldment Design Methodologies
One of the basic questions in weldment design is what design methodology should be used to create weldments. Unfortunately, there is no “one-size-fits-all” strategy. The design methodology you use depends on your individual needs and requirements. You will start by defining the different design methodologies:
- As-assembled means a view of the assembly with no weld preparations, beads, or machining features. This represents a stage in the weldment design.
- As-welded means a view of the assembly with weld preparations and weld beads but no machining features.
- As-machined means a view of the final welded assembly ...
