FAR SIDE DETAILS
Field weld symbol
Weld all-around for pipes, etc.
ARROW SIDE DETAILS
D = Weld Depth (usually equal to plate thickness)
L1 = Weld Length
L2 = Distance between centers for stitched welds
The Field Weld Symbol is a guide for installation. Shipyards
normally do not use it, except in modular construction.
Geometry symbol for V-groove
One-sided welds are max 80% efficient
Two sided are 100% efficient
