x ray inspection

I just welded 6 v groove welds 3 with E11018 and 3 with flux core wire in the 2g 3g and 4g positions all are getting x rayed in hopes for my employment.

I've never had to weld a v groove weld to get hired all my full pens have always been ut. From what I hear x ray is the hardest to pass my question is what are the allowances for discontinuity in a v groove weld?


In this case, its probably AWS D1.1 code that holds the answers to you questions.

Different codes have different allowances for weld discontinuities.

But most codes do provide for allowances for subsurface defects, ( with the exception of cracks)
