Course description: This course introduces the student to the principles and practices of gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), on various welding positions including vertical, horizontal, and 6G weldments on beveled carbon steel pipe, with emphasis on schedule 40.
Course objectives: Students will examine and assess correct safety procedures and practices when using Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, to weld groove and fillet weldments on carbon steel pipes. Proper base metal preparation techniques and weld joint fit-up are emphasized.
Lecture: Students will be evaluated to common welding terminology and theory as they relate to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding of carbon steel pipe.
Lab: : Students completing satisfactorily will have the skills necessary to complete industry standards quality welds in the 2G, 3G, 5G, and 6G welding positions, uphill progression with GTAW welding process. Also have the knowledge to set up welding equipment, for each joint configuration, and position.
