## How wide should a weave bead be?

A rule of thumb is that the maximum weave width should be about three times the electrode core wire diameter. Once deposited, weld beads should preferably exhibit a slightly convex surface contour.

## How wide should a stringer bead be for a 1/8 diameter electrode?

For example, a stringer bead made with a 1/8″ (3.2 mm) diameter electrode should be about 1/4″–3/8″ (6.4 mm–9.6 mm) wide. The height of the weld bead should be approximately 1/32″–3/64″ (0.8 mm–1.2 mm).

## What is the maximum width of a cover pass?

The structural welding code/steel limits the maximum low hydrogen electrode diameter to 5/32 inch. Based on the leg dimension, the width of the fillet face should be on the order of 0.7 inches. Remember, this is a single pass weld.

## How wide can a weld be?

1-2010, the maximum size of a single pass fillet in the vertical position is 1/2 inch. the maximum size low hydrogen electrode is 5/32 inch. A few quick calculations indicates the width of weld face of the single pass fillet weld is 0.707 inches.

## What increases the bead width?

It is found that bead width is affected by the electrode polarity, electrode diameter, electrode extension, welding current, welding voltage and welding speed. … For a particular electrode diameter and extension, it is found that the bead width initially increases as the current and the welding speed increase.

## Which produces the wider bead?

A weave bead is made with some side-to-side motion, which creates a wider weld bead. The end of the weld may have a crater (depres- sion). This depression can be fi lled by moving the electrode to the end of the weld and then back over the completed bead about 1/2″ (13 mm).

## What is the maximum width of the weld cover pass and why?

What is the maximum width of the cover pass? 1-2010, the maximum size of a single pass fillet in the vertical position is 1/2 inch. the maximum size low hydrogen electrode is 5/32 inch. A few quick calculations indicates the width of weld face of the single pass fillet weld is 0.707 inches.
