In the following some considerations about the welding prescriptions are reported as per Eurocode norm. The aim is to offer to the designers a summary of the main specifications that need for a definition of a welding process such as: classification of welding, prescription for drawings, criteria for selection, certification, needed checks, etc…. The applicable European norms for the welding are specified by the following main documents:. EN ISO EN Classification of the welding.

EN was produced as a result of international discussion in which the UK took an active part. To avoid confusion, it is emphasised that levels of detectable imperfection quoted are purely arbitrary and intended for quality control purposes only.
The various levels may be referred to in whole, in part or in combination, or it may be decided that for particular purposes, other levels are more appropriate. It is assumed that the execution of the provisions of the document is entrusted to. A British Standard does not purport to include all the necessary provisions of a. Users of British Standards are responsible for their correct application. Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity from legal obligations.
Summary of pages This document comprises a front cover, an inside front cover, pages i and ii, the EN title page, pages 2 to 14, an inside back cover and a back cover. This standard has been updated see copyright date and may have had amendments incorporated. This will be indicated in the amendment table on the inside front cover.

Table 1 — Limits for imperfections. Annex A informative Additional information and guidelines for use of this International Standard.
It may be used within a total quality system for the production of satisfactory welded joints. It provides three sets of dimensional values from which a selection can be made for a particular application. The level shall be prescribed before the start of production, preferably at the inquiry or order stage.
For special purposes, additional details may need to be prescribed. The quality levels given in this International Standard are intended to provide basic reference data and are not specifically related to any particular application. They refer to the types of welded joints in a fabrication and not to the complete product or component itself. It is possible, therefore, for different quality levels to be applied to individual welded joints in the same product or component.
Quality levels are listed in Table 0. Level symbol. Quality level. The three quality levels are arbitrarily identified as D, C and B and are intended to cover the majority of practical applications. It would normally be hoped that for a particular welded joint the dimensional limits for imperfections could all be covered by specifying one quality level. In some cases, however, e.
The choice of quality level for any application should take account of design considerations, subsequent processing, e. Economic factors are also important and should include not only the cost of welding but also that of inspection, test and repair. Although this International Standard includes types of imperfections relevant to the arc welding processes given in clause 1 , only those which are applicable to the process and application in question need to be considered.
Imperfections are quoted in terms of their actual dimensions, and their detection and evaluation may require the use of one or more methods of non-destructive testing. The detection and sizing of imperfections is dependent on the inspection methods and the extent of testing specified in the application standard or contract. This International Standard does not include details of recommended methods of detection and sizing and, therefore, it needs to be supplemented by requirements for examination, inspection and testing.
It should be appreciated that methods of non-destructive examination may not be able to give the detection, characterization and sizing necessary for use within certain types of imperfections shown in Table 1. Although this International Standard covers a material thickness range of 3 mm to 63 mm, it may well be applicable to thicker or thinner joints provided consideration is given to those technical factors which may influence the situation.
This International Standard provides guidance on levels of imperfections in arc-welded joints in steel. Three levels are given in such a way as to permit application for a wide range of welded fabrications.
The levels refer to production quality and not to the fitness-for-purpose see 3. This International Standard applies to. When significant deviations from the joint geometries and dimensions described in this International Standard are present in the welded product, it is necessary to evaluate to what extent the provisions of this standard can apply.
