Standard Welding Procedure Specification for Naval Applications (SWPS-N) for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding of Austenitic Stainless Steel (S-8), 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1-1/2 inch [38 mm] Thick, MIL-3XX, in the As-Welded Condition, Primarily Pipe for Naval Applications
standard by American Welding Society, 01/01/2016
This standard contains the essential welding variables for austenitic stainless steel in the thickness range of 1/8 inch[3 mm] through 1-1/2 inch [38 mm], using manual gas tungsten arc welding. It cites the base metals and operating conditionsnecessary to make the weldment, the filler metal specifications, and joint designs for groove and fillet welds. ThisSWPS-N was developed primarily for naval applications that require performance to NAVSEA Technical PublicationS9074-AQ-GIB-010/248, Requirements for Welding and Brazing Procedure and Performance Qualification.
