1/8"

• C.

1/4"

• D.

7/32"

A. 5/32"
Explanation
Table 3.6  Prequalified WPS Requirements - there is a notion of a lower case "b"  that states all EXX14 and EXX15, EXX16 and EXX18(low hydrogen electrodes)  shall be a maximum  diameter of 5/32" for Vertical and Overhead positions

### What  is the maximum  prequalified size a single pass 2F weld on  ASTM A 36 plate be according to AWS D1.1, if welded with an E 7018 electrode?

• A.

3/8"

• B.

1/2"

• C.

5/16"

• D.

1/4"

C. 5/16"
Explanation
Table 3.6 Prequalified WPS Requirements  find by looking in index for MAXIMUM ELECTRODE DIAMETER

Rate this question:

• 4.

### What size spacer is required on a prequalified joint B-U3a-S?

• A.

1/4" x 1/2"

• B.

1/8" x 5/8"

• C.

1/4" x 3/16"

• D.

1/4" x 5/8"

D. 1/4" x 5/8"
Explanation
Figure 3.3 Prequalified CJP Groove Welded Joint DetailsThis is one of those questions you can't find by looking in the index, you have to know that Figure 3.3 and 3.2 is where you look up prequalified joints, First go to the Legend on page 65, which lets you know what the letters and numbers mean, B=butt joint, U unlimited, 3=double V groove, a=  backing (I know this because my teacher had us write it in the book along with the letter b =no backing, and c= other minor differences) The book states lower case letters are used to differentiate between joints that would otherwise have the same joint designation and S = SAW. Now look for joint B-U3a-S in the Figure 3.3 Page 85 it will show you Spacer = 1/4 x R, R =5/8 so your answer is 1/4 x 5/8 ....

• A.

20

• B.

10

• C.

12

• D.

17

D. 17
Explanation
Table 6.4 Hole -Type IQI Requirements see nominal material thickness range(they are in decimal format) you have to convert from fraction to decimal or write in the fraction next to it now in your book, answers is 17.Index IQI

A. FCAW, GMAW, SMAW
Explanation
Clause 7.5.5 FCAW, GMAW, SMAW FIllet Weld Option -at the option of the Contractor, studs may be welded using prequalified FCAW, GMAW, or SMAW process, provided the following requirements are met in clauses 7.5.5.1 - 7.5.5.7 Page 247 look in the Index under Studs prequalified processes
