EVALUATION OF IMPROVED MATERIALS AND METHODS OF FABRICATION FOR WELDED STEEL SHIPS

This is the fifth progress report on the investigation entitled, "Evaluation of Improved Materials and Methods of Fabrication for Welded Steel Ships", being conducted for the Ship Structure Committee (Project SR-100). The first objective of this phase of the investigation was to determine the underbead cracking tendencies of forty-one heats of ABS Class "B" and "C" hull steels using the Battelle underbead cracking test. The second objective was to determine whether the more crack-sensitive heats would give trouble in service, as measured by large tee-joint specimens which simulated ship welding conditions. This report describes the details of the crack-sensitivity studies, the tee-joint tests, and the supplemental studies which were conducted.
