Abstract:

A study was made of the ultrasonic inspection method as applied to T-joint weldments typical of submarine hull construction. This work includes the design of a new test block for instrument calibration. Commercially available equipment was used with good results. Of twenty-six locations selected for cross-sectional examination, twenty-five contained a material defect at the location indicated by ultrasonic inspection. A comparison is made between the ultrasonic, macroscopic and radiographic analyses. Author
