American Welding Society (AWS)

June 26, 2017


The American Welding Society (AWS) publishes handbooks, manuals, guides, recommended practices, specifications, and codes. The specifications for filler metals are in the AWS A5 series. The filler metal specifications are usually cited in design documents. The welding procedures are in the D10 series. The AWS handbook is published in five volumes and is intended to be an aid to the user and producer of welded products.

The following is a list of AWS publications directly related to piping. The AWS A5 series filler metal specifications are not included in the list since they can be used for a multitude of items other than piping.
