starting from the beginning

basic questions asked on a welding test?


I dont even know where to start with a broad question like that...
but here goes anyway...

I cant list questions but you will at the very least need to know the following.

types of weld joints....corner, lap, edge, butt, tee

types of welds...fillet, groove, etc

welding symbols and elements...which is arrow side and which is other side, reference line, types of weld symbols and applications, where other info is placed on the welding symbol etc.

process fundamentals and descriptions of the welding processes.

basic welding terms and definitions.

material types and metal identification

welding positions and numbering ie 1f, 2f, 3f, 4f,

1g, 2g, 3g, 4g, 5g, 6g

it goes on and on but this is a start.
