|Publication Date:||19 May 2008|
This Standard specifies requirements for the welding of reinforcing steel used in concrete structures that are designed and constructed in accordance with AS 3600 or NZS 3101.1, as well as other Standards that may be appropriate, by the following processes:
(a) Manual metal-arc welding (MMAW).
(b) Gas metal-arc welding (GMAW).
(c) Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW).
(d) Flash butt welding.
(e) Flame-pressure welding or other processes approved by the principal.
The Standard applies specifically to the welding of reinforcing steels complying with AS/NZS 4671, but other steels may be used as provided for in Clause 2.1.
