  WELDING POSITIONS The easiest position for welding is the flat or downhand position. Any deviation from this  position, other than small deviations in slope makes successful welding much more difficult. This is because gravity does not help in positioning of the weld metal. Positional welding (other than flat) often relies on arc force and surface tension effect; therefore the welding position may affect the mechanical properties of the weld and the likelihood of defects. For simplicity the various welding positions are coded as shown below. BS 499 Welding Positions. PE PD PF PC PG PA PB PA Flat. PB Horizontal vertical. PC Horizontal. PD Horizontal overhead.
