The following references show you the
appropriate geometry you need to select to create a given weld type:


Two other references described the weld
propagation and the symmetrical or double weld:

Square Groove


 The height of both surfaces must be equal and constant.
 The bottom surfaces must be parallel to upper surfaces.


V Groove


 The height of both surfaces must be equal and constant.


Bevel Groove


 The height of both surfaces must be equal and constant.


Weld Propagation


A weld can be propagated on the adjacent and
tangent surfaces. Furthermore, for a symmetrical or double weld, these
surfaces must also respect the symmetrical rules. 

Symmetrical Weld


The selected surfaces for a symmetrical or
double weld must have a constant offset between them, and their orientation
must be opposite.
