Description should show the general arrangement of the parts
to be welded. Where applicable, the root spacing and the details
of weld groove may be specified.
(At the option of the Mfgr., sketches may be attached to illustrate
joint design, weld layers and bead sequence, e.g., for notch
toughness procedures, for multiple process procedures, etc.)
