Customer Question

[Second opinion] hello

appropriate method for structural welding of an i beam

Hello, welding greatly weakens an I beam in many if not most cases... so that a complete structural engineering analysis must be done before the beam is drilled, modified in any way or welded upon.

If and when welding is approved, with detailed drawings, the welder must be currently certified on structural steel.
