FILLET WELD KEYHOLE T BEND TEST

A FILLET WELD KEYHOLE BEND TEST IS PROPOSED FOR GAGING THE QUALITY OF AUTOMATIC AND SEMI-AUTOMATIC FILLET WELDS IN STRUCTURAL STEEL FABRICATION. THE REPORT COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE TEST AND THE STANDARD RESULTS TO BE EXPECTED FROM IT. THE TEST IS SIMILAR IN FORM TO THE STANDARD AWS TEE BEND TEST. A TRANSVERSE SLICE OF A TEST SECTION (IN THE FORM OF A T) IS RELIEVED WITH A NOTCH IN THE FLANGE SECTION OF THE T, ON THE SIDE OPPOSITE THE STEM OF THE T FORMED BY THE WEB SECTION, AND BENT TO PRODUCE A UNIFORM TRANSVERSE ELONGATION ACROSS THE SURFACES OF THE FILLET WELDS CONNECTING THE WEB AND FLANGE. THIS TEST IS CALLED A FILLET WELD KEYHOLE T BEND TEST BECAUSE OF ITS APPEARANCE. ITS PURPOSE IS TO FILL A GAP NOT COVERED BY CURRENTLY ACCEPTED TEST PROCEDURES. /AUTHOR/
