It saves time and money including the use of remote visual inspection (RVI), x- rays, ultrasonic testing and liquid penetration testing.
In most welds, quality is tested based on the function for which it is intended. If you are fixing a part on a machine, if the machine functions properly, then the weld is often considered correct.
Description:Proper joint dimensions are those which allow enough access of the electrode into the joint so that good welding techniques can be used to achieve complete fusion with the base plates and steel backing bar. A balance must be maintained between the depth of penetration and the width of the root pass. Again, weld strength is not determined by the level of penetration into the base plates. The molecules of each separate piece of metal and the filler metal bond together when you have 1 atomic cleanliness and 2 atomic closeness see Figure 2.
