Abstract : A survey was made of various Codes and Standards applicable to the interpretation of radiographs of welds and the Guide has been developed for application to welds in ship hull structures of the general cargo, tanker and passenger class as differentiated from naval ships. The Guide exhibits typical X-ray and other non-destructive test results of several classes of defects with suitable text to delineate the maximum size and/or distribution that would be recommended as acceptable for ship hulls.
