New Edition of AWS Structural Steel Welding Code Now Available

A revised edition of the American Welding Society’s Structural Welding Code – Steel (AWS D1.1/D1.1M:2015) is now available. The new edition, which supersedes the 2010 edition, spells out the requirements for design, procedure and performance qualification, fabrication, inspection and repair of steel structures made of tube, plate and structural shapes that are subject to either static or cyclic loading. 

In addition to editorial changes in the text and commentary, this edition includes a reorganization of tubular clauses, tables and figures previously located throughout the code into a new “Tubular Structures” clause. A corresponding new section of commentary is also included.

This 646-page publication is the joint effort of the D1 Committee on Structural Welding and its D1Q Subcommittee on Steel. It is available for purchase in hard copy or pdf download at The price is $411 for AWS members and $548 for non-members.
