Description

While spot welding has wide use in the automotive and aerospace industries there is no acceptable nondestructive testing technique for evaluation of its quality. One of the major metallurgical defects of spot welds, the stick weld, cannot be evaluated at all. There is growing interest in the industry to develop simple production-oriented nondestructive techniques for evaluation of spot weld quality.
