Some of the most common weld defects are porosity, lack of fusion and burn through, with aluminum presenting a few more welding challenges than steel. Aluminum conducts heat about six times faster than steel, plus it has excellent thermal conductivity coupled with a low melting point, making it extremely susceptible to warping and burn-through.

These reference radiographs are based on two nominal weld thicknesses in wrought aluminum products and are applicable to the thickness ranges shown in Table welds were produced using base material plates of and alloys and and gas metal-arc (GMA) electrodes.

These reference radiographs are intended for use in evaluating radiographs. radiographic images of weld defects filetype pdf Acquisition of radiographic image, welding seam extraction, detection of the most common weld defects that can be identified in the radiographic.

Then the weld radiographic images and the methodology for defect raphic images of welds and correct ones is introduced. The main defects types in aluminium welds are considered: cavities, porosities and lack of penetration.

Excess of penetration has also to be detected, but is considered as a normal structure. The developed procedure is either adapted to radioscopic images or digitized films, and the results are compared in terms of smallest detected flaw.

To optimize, set up, and pre-evaluate the algorithm, the article explores a design of experimental approach in combination with synthetic radiographs of. These reference radiographs may be used as a means for establishing the types and severity levels of discontinuities that are revealed by radiographic examination of steel fusion welds.

Each volume contains illustrations of representative graded and ungraded discontinuities applicable to seven thickness ranges, as shown in Table 1. Investigation of weld defects in friction-stir welding and fusion welding of aluminium alloys Paul Kah*, Richard Rajan, Jukka Martikainen and Raimo Suoranta Abstract Transportation industries are obliged to address concerns arising from greater emphasis on energy saving and ecologically sustainable by: Lack of fusion and cold lap.

The terms cold lap and lack of fusion are often used interchangeably. However, they are slightly different and can happen mil'ndependently or in conjunction with one another in MIG welding.

Lack of fusion is the result of the weld metal failing to fuse completely to the base metal or to the preceding weld bead. Radiograph Interpretation - Welds. In addition to producing high quality radiographs, the radiographer must also be skilled in radiographic interpretation.

Interpretation of radiographs takes place in three basic steps: (1) detection, (2) interpretation, and (3) evaluation. All of these steps make use of the radiographer's visual acuity. sensor to detect the weld defects in aluminium Friction stir welds.

In this paper, X- radiography methods are used to study the defects in FSW. Radiography can detect flaws or discontinuities in welds such as cold lap, porosity, incomplete penetration or lack of penetration (lop), incomplete fusion, and internal concavity or suck back.

The main defects in laser welds in both steel and aluminium are solidification cracking (also called hot cracking or centreline cracking) and porosity. Solidification cracking. In steels, the chemical composition of the parent steel will have an effect on the crack-susceptibility.

methods were used in all the test welds. The welds were produced autogenously on the sheet without a groove. In the main experiments, 2 X 50 X mm ( X 2 X 10 in.) test sheet was welded to a rigid jig —Fig.

The gray levels in weld images depend on the density and thickness of the material being tested. This causes the relative contrast of the defect area to vary with its position. A technique of classifying images of defects in automatic radiographic testing of welds is presented.

A mathematical description of images of defects is given. A heuristic classifier developed with allowance for generalization of the experience of industrial radiography and implemented in software and hardware complexes of computerized coding of radiographs Cited by: 2.

In this work, radiography was employed as the NDT technique for detection of flaws in circumferential girth welds of steel pipelines used in offshore installations in the petroleum industry. The kind of defect specifically focused was lack of fusion.

It is currently accepted in the literature that radiography is not as sensitive as ultrasonics to detect lack of fusion by: 6. Following the review of film quality, radiographs should be examined for the presence of defects in the weld and adjacent material.

Examination should be carried out even if the film quality is unacceptable since gross defects may be visible and the component could be rejected without the need for further radiography. Linear mottling on X-ray radiographs of automatic TIG welded aluminium alloy studied by X-ray topography A.

Lindegaard-Andersen. X-ray radiography techniques are used for evaluation of the quality of the friction stir welded aluminium butt joints. This paper reports X-ray radiography testing conducted on similar friction stir welds between AAT aluminium alloy and dissimilar friction stir welds between aluminium alloys AAT and AAT : Chetan Patil, Hemant Patil, Hiralal Patil.

However, in a previous article (“Reliability of radiographic inspection of steel pipeline girth welds,†QNDE Conference, ), the authors showed that it is possible to detect lack of fusion defects if, in the radiographic tests, the angle of incidence is the same angle that the weld bevel makes with the test piece surface, which.

Radiograph Interpretation - Castings The major objective of radiographic testing of castings is the disclosure of defects that adversely affect the strength of the product. Castings are a product form that often receive radiographic inspection since many of the defects produced by the casting process are volumetric in nature, and are thus.

NDT Methods for Aluminium Welds The quality of welds in welded joints can be tested using testing standards specific for aluminium or by using methods adapted from testing methods for steels. The magnaflux test (magnetic particle test) cannot be used for testing the non-magnetic aluminium (Figure ).File Size: 42KB.

Evaluation of the relevant features of welding defects in radiographic inspection beam. Mainly used in the petroleum, petrochemical, nuclear and power generation industries for the inspection of welds and castings especially, as well as in the war industry for the inspection of explosives, armaments and missiles, the radiography has played.

Friction stir welding (FSW) has dramatically changed how aluminium alloys can be welded. The quality of FS welds is usually excellent, but some imperfections periodically occur. The geometry, location, and microstructural nature of these imperfections bear no resemblance to the imperfections typically found in aluminium fusion by: Weld defect detection in industrial radiography based digital image processing N.

Nacereddine*, M. Zelmat**, S. Belaïfa* and M. Tridi* for the inspection of welds, the defects is an important step which is essential to appreciate the quality of the weld (Schwartz, ). Fatigue life assessment of the above mentioned three types of cold lap defects was carried out using finite element and crack growth analysis in 2D and 3D.

In the 2D analysis the cold lap defects were modeled as line crack (assuming a/c=0). Based on the experiments the cold lap defects were visualized as having two probable crack.

InLeong et al. developed an algorithm for locating and extracting welds from the intensity profiles of images using a simple graphical analysis method. This algorithm successfully extracted welds from 45 digitized weld radiography images.

It worked well with radiographs with non-Gaussian intensity distributions across the weld by: Non-Destructive Testing Techniques for Detecting Imperfections in Friction Stir Welds of Aluminium Alloys.

However, before acceptable welds in aluminum such as those required within these industries can be produced, certain workshop practices and techniques have to be adhered to. In the chemical, cryogenic, aerospace, and nuclear industries, aluminum and its alloys are widely used and frequently need to be joined by the application of welding.

This requires that 2 additional spot radiographs need to be taken for each of those that failed. If any of the additional radiographs show unacceptable defects, then the whole weld "increment" represented by those radiographs is unacceptable, and needs to be removed and re-welded, or % radiography needs to be performed.
