Abstract:

This report describes an effort to generate the correlation data necessary to establish ultrasonic standards and specifications for the inspection of brazed and weld overlay joints of artillery shell rotating bands. Ultrasonic pulse-echo C-scan tests were made of the brazed and weld overlay areas of projectile motor bodies. Mechanical test plugs were machined from selected areas of these bands. The shear bond strengths of the plugs were measured and correlated with C-scan results. Artificial and actual unbond areas of bond joints were destructively examined and correlated with C-scans.
