RECOMMENDED EMERGENCY WELDING PROCEDURE FOR TEMPORARY REPAIRS OF SHIP STEELS

The new merchant cargo ships use a large variety of steels in their construction; the steels range in yield strength from 40 to 100 ksi. Since some of these steels require a close control of the welding procedure as well as other special techniques to assure serviceability, it was felt that a special repair welding procedure must be developed. The procedure must be applicable for all strengths of steel used in construction and should require a minimum amount of procedure control. The recommended temporary welding repair procedure and a discussion of the survey which led to the recommendation are described in this report.
