: This experiment covers test method for break test on butt weld and filletweld and examines the surface for weld area. Break test involves breaking the weld joint to examine the fractured surfaces for externaldefects.The nick break test is useful for determining the internal quality of theweld metal. This test reveals various internal defects (if present), such asslag inclusions, gas pockets, lack of fusion, and oxidized or burnedmetal.
1.To accomplish the nick-break test for checking a butt weld, the specimen preparation was began by cutting using plasma cutting.2.The important thing in this test is the bevel preparation. At the edge of thespecimen should be machined by using milling machine that has been set to45
.3.The bevelled need to be clean surface and the angle of the bevel must be 45
.4.We used FCAW as the welding process to join the specimen.5.The test specimen shall be cut transversely to the welded joint and shall havethe full thickness of the plate at the joint. This was shown by the figure 2 below.Figure 2 Specimen has been cutted6.Make a saw cut at each edge and at the surface through the center of the weld.The depth of cut slot should be refer to the lowest weld bead as long as all thewelded joint have been sawed as shown from figure 3 below.Figure 3 Specimen from sideSaw slot
7.Next, place the saw-nicked specimen on two steel supports, as shown in figure4 below. But in this experiment, we us same method as bending testequipment. The only different that we have done is the test specimen was placed with the surface face upward.Figure 4 Nick-break test position8.Applied the force using testing machine onto test specimen.9.The forced should be applied until the test specimen break or fracture.
:From the figure 5 below, it’s show the result of the nick break test. Theapplied forced that have been applied when the specimen break have been taken.For the first applied force, the gauge indicated at 400psi and the specimen was turn backward and the second applied forced that make the test specimen break is at200psi.Figure 5 Test resultSurface
