Abstract : The document presents procedures and acceptance limits for contract ultrasonic inspection of steel but welds in the thickness range of 1/4 to 2 inches. The acceptance limits described are compatible with those set forth in SSC-177, 'Guide for Interpretation of Nondestructive Tests of Welds in Ship Hull Structures' for radiographic inspection and should therefore result in statisfactory ship welds.
