WELDING ARTICLES AND RELATED STUFF
While the headlines call "Additive Manufacturing" something new and exciting, the welding industry has been using it for almost a century.

ASME B31.9-2012, Building Services Piping, contains a method for determining whether a reinforcing pad is needed for a branch connection. This spreadsheet contains that formula and input data. The industry owes the late Mr. Paul Bourquin, Founding Chairman of B31.9 committee, a big "Thank you!" for developing this formula and the spreadsheet. and for getting it into B31.9 .
