WPSs and WPS Qualification: Guidance for Engineers, Fabricators, and Erectors [O3]

This session is for engineers who want to learn more about WPSs and WPS qualification as well as for fabricators and erectors who want to learn more about writing WPSs and conducting WPS qualification testing. We'll look at governing standards such as AISC 360, AISC 341, AWS D1.1, and AWS D1.8 and discuss things like how to write and review a WPS and when to consider WPS qualification even if it isn't required. What are the responsibilities of engineers, fabricators, and erectors regarding WPSs and WPS qualification when qualification is required? What are the limits to prequalification in AWS D1.1 and AWS D1.8? When should--or can--requirements for WPS qualification be waived? We'll answer all of that and more.
