Abstract : The report documents the technical considerations involved in preparing a guide for the ultrasonic inspection of butt welds in commercial ships. The acceptance criteria for the ultrasonic inspection method closely approximates those of the radiographic method in the previously published Ship Structure Document SSC-177-Guide for Interpretation of Nondestructive Tests of Welds in Ship Hull Structures (AD-639 053).
