Weld defects analysis of 60 mm thick SS 316 L mock-ups of TIG and EB welds by Ultrasonic inspection for fusion reactor vacuum vessel applications

The present paper reports the nondestructive examination of weld defects for 60 mm thick AISI SS316L weld samples fabricated by multipass TIG welding and electron beam welding techniques. Vacuum vessel and other subsystems fabrication in advanced fusion reactor systems utilize higher thick section steel welding by different kind techniques. The weld quality… CONTINUE READING
