[MW:6862] Re: Weld joint efficiency

Dear Anoj

As per section VIII division 1 UW-12 gives the details of joint
efficiency for joints completed with Arc or Gas welding.

As per simple defination: Ratio of Strength of the Joint to Strength
of the base metal is known as joint efficiency.

As per code : JE depends on Type of joint & degree of examination of
the joint

In case of any equipment the joint efficiency of one joint does not
depend on the joint efficiency of any other joint.

You can refer Table UW-12 for the values of joint efficiency based on
the Full RT, Spot RT or No RT .
