Determines the physical weld generation for plates, profiles, and members. The type of weld is set by the assembly connection rules. For more information, see Assembly Connection Rules.

The following selector class modules are included in the Visual Basic project. The inputs to each selector rule are the two connected objects from the model.

ButtWeldSel

This selector rule determines the butt weld type. This selector rule is associated with the ButtWeld worksheet of the bulkload workbook. The selector rule provides questions for:

  • Welding type (from the assembly connection rules)

  • Shipyard (from the assembly connection rules)

  • Category (from the assembly connection rules)

  • Welding position

  • Chamfer type (from the assembly connection or chamfer rules)

  • Flipping the bevel

  • First welding side (molded or antimolded)

  • Workcenter

Corner welds use the butt weld selection rules.

For more information, see Butt Welds

TeeWeldSel

This selector rule calls the RootTeeWeldSel or LeafTeeWeldSelsub-selectors. This selector rule is associated with the TeeWeld worksheet of the bulkload workbook.

  • RootTeeWeldSel - This selector is only used when a tee weld is split. This selector rule calls the LeafTeeWeldSel sub-selector for each segment of the split tee weld. This selector rule is associated with the RootTeeWeld worksheet of the bulkload workbook.

  • LeafTeeWeldSel - This selector rule determines the tee weld type based on the mounting angle. This selector rule provides questions for category, class society, bevel angle method, first welding side (molded or antimolded), shipyard, and workcenter. The selector rule is associated with the LeafTeeWeld worksheet of the bulkload workbook.

For more information, see Tee Welds

ChamferTeeWeldSel

This selector rule determines the chamfered tee weld type. This selector rule provides questions for category, class society, bevel angle method, and chamfer thickness. This selector rule is associated with the ChamferTeeWeld worksheet of the SM_SRDWelds.xls workbook.

LapWeldSel

This selector rule determines the lap weld type. This selector rule provides the category question. This selector rule is associated with the LapWeld worksheet of the bulkload workbook.

  • For all selection rules, you can modify the selector logic, selector questions, and parameter values.

  • Answers to selector questions originating in the assembly connection should only be modified at the assembly connection level.
