The whole question of weld defects has been shown to be in need of reassessment. The outline of proposals shortly to be issued shows that this complex question is amenable to a rational approach which can provide a practical basis for welding requirements. From time to time the proposals will need modification as results of further research and experience become available. This undoubtedly will include brittle fracture; and may include a probabilistic approach to weld performance, and an extension of the proposals to more direct practical acceptance standards for nondestructive testing. Assistance in this development by means of constructive comments and advice of service experience will be appreciated.
