Radiographic test is the most effective to detect lack of sidewall fusion? (True or false)
Ans. False, UT is the most
Why preheat is needed for materials in welding process?
Ans. To avoid cracking

Lamination defect can detect by?

Ans. Ultrasonic test (UT)

Give at least 3 essential variables of WPS?

Ans. Electrode, preheat, volt/amp, position, base metal

. What is WPS?
Ans. Welding Procedure Specification- a prepared welding procedure which serve as
guidance of the welders

59. What is WPQ?

Ans. Welders Performance Qualification- is the performance testing of the welder capability
to do the weld in accordance with approved WPS

60. What is PQR?

Ans. Procedure Qualification Record- a record of welding data used to weld a test coupon

61. What is PMI?

Ans. Positive material Identification- a process use to determine the constituents of a

62. What is HAZ?

Ans. Heat affected zone- a portion of base metal that was not melted during welding process
but whose microstructure & properties were altered by heat

63. What is PWHT, its purpose?

Ans. Post weld heat treatment- to relieve internal stress that has trapped inside the weld
during welding process

64. What is purpose of preheat?

Ans. To slow down the cooling rate, to reduce hardness of the weld, to avoid cracking &

65. What is interpass temperature?

Ans. A highest temperature in the weld were immediately perform prior to welding or in the

Cleaning of previous run slags

What is lack of side wall fusion

Insufficient fusion of side wall with weld metal due to rapid movement of electrode and
unskilled welder
