New Bridge Welding Code
Posted by Alison Trost on December 30, 2010 at 12:39 PM.

The American Welding Society has published a revised edition of its D1.5 Bridge Welding Code. The new standard, which is known as AASHTO/AWS D1.5M/D1.5:2010, supersedes the 2008 edition. It addresses the need for a common welding specification for the fabrication of steel highway bridges by welding that can be used with minimal modification by the departments of highways and transportation in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico that make up the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). The 478-page book is available at 888.935.3464 or www.aws.org/standards for $264. AWS members can purchase the code book for just $198.
