ABSTRACT
Responds to a question on why welding procedures using a heat treatable base alloy are unable to meet the minimum tensile strength requirement of the American Welding Society's Structural Welding Code. Quality of the weld produced by a groove weld procedure using a 6061-T6 base metal; Overheating of the base metal during the welding process; Characteristics of the heat treatable aluminum alloys; Ways to meet the minimum tensile strength requirements of the code.
