A GUIDE FOR THE NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF NON-BUTT WELDS IN COMMERCIAL SHIPS - PART TWO

This report is in two parts: Part 1 is the guide for the nondestructive testing of non-butt welds in commercial ships. Part 2 documents the technical considerations involved in preparing that guide. Procedures are presented for performing visual inspection, magnetic particle testing, radiography, ultrasonics, and penetrant testing on steel welds in the thickness range of 1/2" to 2-1/2". The basic weld joints considered are the corner joint, the Tee, "X", and the lap joint. A discussion is presented for each of the inspection methods whereby weld quality may be controlled in a meaningful way when there is a need to do so.
