BUTT WELD FAILURES

The record of accumulated failures in the different types of butt welds from 1962 through December 31, 1969 was furnished on a voluntary basis by railroads. However, most failures were reported by a small number of railroads indicating little uniformity in reporting failure data. Absolute comparisons and total failure rates could not be derived from the data.
