is a lisp routine that that will calculate welds several different ways.
1st way: Enter a kip load to find the approximate lengths of multiple size welds.
Then place the cursor into a weld size field and press enter to get the actual kip-load for that weld length. (see sample at left)
2nd way: Enter a length into any size weld, the kip load is the result. (see sample at left)
3rd way: After entering the length needed in the weld size field, check the real check-box, then pick the total amount of individual welds, to find the actual kip-load for multiple welds. (see sample at left)
At any time after the weld calculation is done, you can change electrode sizes to see the load & length for the new electrode.
Min. Plate Size, Min. Plug Size & Thicker Part size displayed as weld sizes change.
Including a full help sensitive dialog (click help after placing cursor into any field).
Calculates welds based on the AISC Detailing For Steel Construction Manual (1983 edition)
