STI 199 - Ironworker Welding 2

Credits: 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: STI 134  

This course is designed to develop proficiency using oxy-fuel cutting (OFC) and welding out of position.  Emphasis is placed on the use of OFC for field fabrication and weldment preparation.  Out-of-position welds are in the 2G, 3G and 4G positions.  Instruction on proper preparation of weldments is addressed. Other topics include field fabrication, weld symbol interpretation and field fabrication.  The knowledge and skills needed to weld proficiently are measured through performance and written assessments.  The learning and application of safe welding practices are emphasized throughout the course.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Troubleshoot the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and OFC processes.
  2. Select the proper OFC tips and pressures with respect to steel thickness. 
  3. Fit up and prepare weldments to correct dimensions.
  4. Interpret standard weld symbols in order to create weldments.
  5. Demonstrate proper use of OFC by trimming a wide flange beam.
  6. Bevel the flange of a beam at a 45-degree angle to prepare for a weld.
  7. Cut a hole in steel using OFC to accept a bolt.
  8. Fabricate a structural component by using a detailed drawing.

 Listed Topics

  1. Weld joints and their cross sections
  2. Weld joint preparation
  3. OFC troubleshooting and setup
  4. Steel fabrication
