# Butt weld geometry

## Butt weld geometry

This engineering drawing shows different types of geometry of butt welds.
"Welds can be geometrically prepared in many different ways. The five basic types of weld joints are the butt joint, lap joint, corner joint, edge joint, and T-joint (a variant of this last is the cruciform joint). Other variations exist as well - for example, double-V preparation joints are characterized by the two pieces of material each tapering to a single center point at one-half their height. Single-U and double-U preparation joints are also fairly common - instead of having straight edges like the single-V and double-V preparation joints, they are curved, forming the shape of a U. Lap joints are also commonly more than two pieces thick - depending on the process used and the thickness of the material, many pieces can be welded together in a lap joint geometry." [Welding.

## Interior Design Piping Plan - Design Elements

The pipe laying and setting the plumbing system at new apartment or home, or replacing the worn plumbing begins from the choice of materials, sizes of pipes and creation the plan. When developing a piping system, the engineer should take into account many aspects, such as advantages and disadvantages of different pipes materials, the temperature changes (freezing or thermal expansion) that effect on pipes. The most commonly used are steel pipes which have passed the test of time, but they are difficult for assembling and prone to corrosion, plastic (polypropylene) pipes that are characterized by low weight and price, ease of installation and durability, and also PEX-AL-PEX pipes. Numerous libraries with ready-to-use design elements of pipes, valves and other plumbing and piping equipment included to Plumbing and Piping Plans solution for ConceptDraw PRO help easy design Piping and Plumbing interior design plans, blueprints, schematic diagrams, technical drawings of waste water disposal systems, hot and cold water supply systems.

## Mechanical Drawing Symbols

Mechanical Drawings are the special type of technical diagrams that visualize the structure of complex systems and illustrate the information about ventilation, heating, air conditioning, i.e. HVAC systems. These drawings are created on the base of floor plans and reflected ceiling plans, and then become an obligatory part of construction project which is needed directly for construction a building and for receiving a permit on it. Mechanical drawings and diagrams help effectively represent construction, technical and engineering solutions, and also schematics of different mechanical equipment. ConceptDraw PRO vector drawing software enhanced with Mechanical Engineering solution from Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides wide set of effective drawing tools, predesigned mechanical drawing symbols, templates, samples and examples. Use of standardized and recognized mechanical vector symbols helps you design understandable mechanical drawings, diagrams and mechanical engineering schematics. Read more

## Design elements - Pipes (part 1)

The vector stencils libraries "Pipes 1" and "Pipes 2" contain 28 and 48 pipe, tubing and fitting symbols, respectively.
"A fitting is used in pipe plumbing systems to connect straight pipe or tubing sections, to adapt to different sizes or shapes, and for other purposes, such as regulating or measuring fluid flow. The term plumbing is generally used to describe conveyance of water, gas, or liquid waste in ordinary domestic or commercial environments, whereas piping is often used to describe high-performance (e.g. high pressure, high flow, high temperature, hazardous materials) conveyance of fluids in specialized applications. The term tubing is sometimes used for lighter-weight piping, especially types that are flexible enough to be supplied in coiled form.
Fittings (especially uncommon types) require money, time, materials, and tools to install, so they are a non-trivial part of piping and plumbing systems." [Piping and plumbing fitting. Wikipedia]
Use the design elements libraries "Pipes 1" and "Pipes 2" for drawing plumbing and piping building plans, schematic diagrams, blueprints, or technical drawings of waste water disposal systems, hot and cold water supply systems using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
The shapes libraries "Pipes 1" and "Pipes 2" are contained in the Plumbing and Piping Plans solution from the Building Plans area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
