1. Plate qualifies for welding pipe or tubing over 610 mm (24 in.) in diameter.

2. Qualifies for fillet and groove welds in all positions except for complete joint penetration groove welding of T-, Y-, and K-connections.

3. See 5.9.2 and Part I of sections 7 through 10 for requirements.

4. Positions of welding: F = flat, H = horizontal, V = vertical, OH = overhead.

5. Positions as defined in 5.8.

5.8.4 Plate Groove Welds. In making the tests to qualify groove welds, test plates shall be welded in the following positions (illustrated in Figure 5.3):

5.8.4.1 Position PA (1G) Flat. The plates are placed in an approximately horizontal plane and the weld metal is deposited from the upper side. See Figure 5.3(A).

5.8.4.2 Position PC (2G) Horizontal. The plates are placed in an approximately vertical plane with the groove approximately horizontal. See Figure 5.3(B).

5.8.4.3 Position PG (3G down) or PF (3G Up). The plates are placed in an approximately vertical plane with the groove approximately vertical. See Figure 5.3(C).

5.8.4.4 Position PE (4G) Overhead. The plates are placed in an approximately horizontal plane, and the weld metal is deposited from the under side. See Figure 5.3(D).

5.8.5 Pipe Groove Welds. In making the tests to qualify groove welds, the positions shall be as indicated below (illustrated in Figure 5.4):

5.8.5.1 Position PA (1G) Pipe Horizontal Rolled.

The pipe shall be placed with its axis horizontal and the groove in an approximately vertical plane. The pipe shall be rotated during welding, so the weld metal is deposited from the upper side. See Figure 5.4(A).

5.8.5.2 Position PC (2G) Pipe Vertical. The pipe shall be placed with its axis vertical and the welding groove approximately horizontal. The pipe shall not be rotated during welding. See Figure 5.4(B).

5.8.5.3 Position PG (5G down) or PF (5G up) Pipe Horizontal Fixed. The pipeshall be placed with its axis horizontal and the groove in an approximately vertical
