Axis Of Weld Horizontal

NOTE: ONE PLATE MUST BE HORIZONTAL

(C) TEST POSITION PG (3F DOWN)

(D)TEST POSITION PF (3F UP)

Figure 5.5—Positions of Test Plates for Fillet Welds

5.8.63 Position PG (3F Down) or PF (3F Up) Vertical. The plates are placed such that each fillet weld is deposited with its axis approximately vertical. See Figure 5.5(C).

5.8.6.4 Position PD (4F) Overhead. The plates are placed such that each fillet weld is deposited on the underside of a horizontal surface and against a vertical surface. See Figure 5.5(D).

5.8.7 Pipe Fillet Welds. In making tests to qualify fillet welds, test pipes shall be welded in the positions indicated below (illustrated in Figure 5.6):

5.8.7.1 Position PA (IF) Flat. The assembly shall be placed with the pipe axis inclined at 45 degrees to hori zontal and rotated during welding; the weld metal shall be deposited from above and at the highest point of rotation of the joint. The axis of the weld at that point shall be horizontal and the throat vertical. Refer to Figure 5.6(A).

5.8.7.2 Position PB (2F) Horizontal. The assembly shall be placed with the pipe axis vertical so that the weld is deposited on the upper side of a horizontal surface and against a vertical surface. The axis of the weld shall be horizontal, and the pipe shall not be rotated during welding. Refer to Figure 5.6(B).

5.8.73 Position PB (2FR) Horizontal Rotated. The assembly shall be placed with the pipe axis horizontal
