AISI-Specifications for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members

Alternative Title

Final Report on CSICC Industry Research Project 175

Abstract

The weld used by the steel deck erectors to anchor steel decking to structural steel framing is commonly known as "Puddle Weld". It is formed by arc-welding with stick electrodes to "melt" through the deck, resulting in puddle of molten steel durinlj the welding operation. Hence, the weld is commonly referred to in the trade as "Puddle Weld". Since the inception of this research projE:ct, this type of weld has been given a new technical name -the "Arc-Spot Feld" to reflect the actual welding process and the formation of the weld.
