This data dictionary specifies data elements that are used to describe the design, fabrication and inspection of weldments. It comprises welding information from several authoritative sources. Data include description of component materials, details of joints and welds, and variables of the welding processes. The data dictionary provides, in one document, the welding information needed to develop format specifications for digital data that can be exchanged by computer programs.
