Abstract:

Procedures are presented for performing visual inspection, magnetic particle testing, radiography, ultrasonics, and penetrant testing on steel welds in the thickness range of 12 inches to 2 12 inches. The basic weld joints considered are the corner joint, the Tee, X, and the lap joint. A discussion is presented for each of the inspection methods whereby weld quality may be controlled in a meaningful way when there is a need to do so.
