AWS D17.1 gives you access the most significant changes to aviation welding standards in more than 30 years!
AWS D17.1 - Specification for Fusion Welding for Aerospace Applications is a revolutionary document that represents the most significant change to aviation welding standards in more than 30 years. D17.1 2010 emphasizes fusion welding of aluminum-based, nickel-based, iron-based, cobalt-based, magnesium-based, and titanium-based alloys using electric arc and high energy beam processes. SI metric equivalents provided.
The information contained in this document covers three areas that have never been addressed in MILSTDs design, repair, and nonflight hardware. Expanded and new coverage also includes authoritative procedures for weld repair of in service existing aerospace flight hardware.
In addition, the book provides excellent coverage on inspection, and information to avoid both under and over inspection, arising from the D17 Committees position that choosing acceptance criteria beyond the capability of the welding process may lead to numerous inspection rejections, thereby increasing costs.
To improve efficiency, the document includes several invaluable reference tables on acceptance criteria (one in U.S. Customary units, the other in SI units) that serve to provide distinctions for Class A, B, and C welds. An annex is also included, offering guidelines for design, analysis, and fabrication of weld joints. ANSI Approved.
