Abstract

When a fabricator wants to verify that a welding procedure is fit for purpose, it is usually advisable to perform a verification test as described in, for example, EN SO 15614–1. It is important to select the corrosion test method in such a way that test results reflect the performance in the actual application environment. In this paper, standardised test methods suitable for welded joints are discussed. It is also pointed out that many test methods used today should be revised to permit adequate testing, as they are not applicable to welded joints.
