There were 1/4" fillets all over that building, look at the drawings.<quoted text>I don't believe they used little 1/4" fillet welds on the strongest buildings in the world.
You always want to indicate the architects who designed it are all a bunch of dumb bastards, well I cannot believe that either.
But you, as always, dodged the question.
How much force could the welds withstand and how much force were they subjected to?
Btw, 60xx consumable has a tensile strength of 60ksi.
Your post regarding welding was pure bunk.
