Material Tests for Welding

“Material Tests for Welding” introduces users to the types and purposes of welding material tests. Welding materials are tested to evaluate their properties, examine for discontinuities, and ensure the project meets welding code specifications. Testing can be destructive or non-destructive. Testing can also be used to classify metals according to their carbon content. This class includes lessons on non-destructive testing methods such as visual inspection, radiographic, ultrasonic, penetrant, and magnetic particle tests. Users will also become familiar with destructive testing methods such as the macro-etch test, fillet weld break test, guided bend test, and transverse tension test. After completing this course, users will be able to identify common material tests, the practical applications of destructive and non-destructive methods, and the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
