In the US, typical structural steel welding is covered by either AWS D1.1 or AWS D1.5 (bridges). Both of these codes cover a wide range of carbon steels.
AWS has a separate code for welding stainless steels, AWS D1.6. There is some mention of welding to carbon steels, but this is mostly talking about choosing the filler metal and not the testing.
Neither D1.1 nor D1.5 cover stainless steel.
In this specific situation, I am looking at a fillet weld between a carbon steel plate and a stainless steel plate.
What is the procedure for qualifying (PQR and WPS) a weld between the two materials? Does one code control over the other? Would the weld have to be qualified per both specifications?
