A STUDY ON A METHOD OF EVALUATION OF ALLOWABLE LIMITS OF WELD DEFECTS

In general, butt welds in hull structures are left "as welded", i.e. without removal of the weld reinforcement. Such joints can be acceptable even if they contain certain defects, and the Authors describe a proposed method, which takes fatigue strength and other factors into consideration, for determining the allowable limits of the defects, particularly those at the weld tow. Trial examinations of the application of the method to two types of defect--blow-holes and slag inclusions--are also described.
