13. New Technology Applications
This paper addresses the difficult problem of evaluating weld integrity of partial penetration type weld joints. Radiographic standards for partial penetration welds have in the past not been considered feasible due to confusing indications on the radiograph, resulting from the partially welded joint. The Army has developed a technique to offset this problem with suitable radiographic standards for conventional weld defects. This technique will be discussed.
