i remember this formula: P= WL / E where: P is the Pounds of electrode or wire that is required W is the Weight per foot of weld metal L is the Length of weld in feet and E is the Deposition efficiency

Reply by icyblue (236):
The weight per foot of the weld metal depends of 4 things
1. Area of the cross-section of the weld. 2. Length of the weld. 3. Volume of the weld in cubic inches. 4. Weight of the weld metal per cubic inch. Hope that helps!  add a comment
