  • 500 Deg C
  • 300 Deg C
  • 300 Deg F
  • 730 Deg C
  1. Inspection for hydrogen cracking is often specified to be done between 48 to 75 hours after completion of the weld, this is because?
  • The stress level will have reduced by then
  • Applying a stress relief heat treatment after welding
  • Avoiding stress concentrations

  1. Basic electrodes are often sold vacuum packed. The reason is:
  • They have been packed at the manufacturers at a hydrogen level less than 5ml per 100g of weld metal deposited
  • They are mass produced which makes there electrodes cheap
  • They require less baking time after removal from the packet
  • They are formulated that once open they will pick up no more moisture
  1. On inspecting a completed weld which has charpy impact requirements some small areas of undercut have been found. The welder says he can quickly put this right by depositing a thin narrow bead along the undercut. In the situation would you?
  • Agree to go ahead with no preheat as the weld is so small
  • Agree to go ahead with the same preheat as the original weld
  • Agree to go ahead with a preheat 50 degree C below original
  • Only allow the welder to cosmetically blend out the undercut
  1. With regards to Lamellar tearing, a buttering layer will:

Yes, Question 23: correct answer D.
See EN 1011-2 2004, Section 2.4 - Combined thickness

Crossiform joint d= d1 + d2 + d3 + d4
BW d= d1 + d2
FW d= d1 + d2 + d3

D. Should be correct 4x20mm, Tee is 3x25mm

Answer should be A? Because Iridium-192 should use for thickness from 10mm


Best answer should be “C”. Due to using method DWSI, thickness of weld product shall be t = 2x8 = 16 mm.


for question 1, why the answer is C. Fatigue to ductile?

my answer is D. Brittle. since brittle has flat and rough surface.


I agreed with you, flare and rough surface.

Our recommended answer is D. What is your comments C.
