Abstract:

Samples were produced illustrating three types of weld surface condition. Roughness and irregular contour samples were produced at three severity levels in butt and fillet welds reentrant angle samples of butt and fillet welds were produced illustrating various angles around 90 degrees. The samples could form the basis for a guide for the description and evaluation of weld surface conditions which could be applicable to various structural and pressure vessel applications. The use of such illustrations, replicated as plastic models, could reduce the frequency of making physical measurements of weld surface conditions, and also reduce subjective considerations in evaluating weld surface conditions.
