      1"

    • B.

      1 1/4"

    • C.

      1 1/2"

    • D.

      1 3/4"

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 1/2"
    Explanation
    The minimum length of an intermittent fillet weld is 1 1/2". This means that the weld should be at least 1 1/2" long. The intermittent fillet weld is a type of weld that is not continuous and is made up of a series of smaller welds. It is commonly used when the joint does not require a continuous weld. The minimum length requirement ensures that the weld is strong enough to withstand the intended load and provides sufficient bonding between the two pieces being joined.

    The given description indicates the Visual Testing (VT) process. VT is a nondestructive examination method that involves inspecting the surface of a material or component to detect any visible discontinuities or defects. It is commonly used to verify fit-up, joint configuration, weld dimensions, and profiles. Unlike other NDE processes, such as PT (Penetrant Testing), RT (Radiographic Testing), and MT (Magnetic Particle Testing), VT specifically focuses on visual inspection.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Of the following which is not considered a joint?

    • A.

      Lap

    • B.

      Corner

    • C.

      Bevel

    • D.

      Edge

    Correct Answer
    C. Bevel
    Explanation
    A bevel is not considered a joint because it is a type of cut or angle that is made on the edge of a material, rather than a connection between two separate pieces. A lap joint is formed when two pieces overlap each other, a corner joint is formed when two pieces meet at a 90-degree angle, and an edge joint is formed when two edges are joined together. However, a bevel is a slanted or angled cut that is made on the edge of a material for various purposes such as aesthetics or to create a smooth transition between two surfaces.

    Which of the following electrode(s) need shielding gas?

    • A.

      E71T-1

    • B.

      E71T-2

    • C.

      E71T3

    • D.

      Both   E71T-1 and E71T-2

    Correct Answer
    D. Both   E71T-1 and E71T-2
    Explanation
    E71T-1 and E71T-2 electrodes both require shielding gas. Shielding gas is used in welding to protect the molten metal from atmospheric contamination, such as oxygen and nitrogen, which can cause defects in the weld. E71T-1 and E71T-2 electrodes are both classified as flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) electrodes, which means they have a flux-filled core that provides shielding to the weld. However, this flux alone is not sufficient to protect the weld from atmospheric contamination, so shielding gas is also required.

    • C.

      Over 120 degrees F

    • D.

      Below 102 degrees F

    Correct Answer
    A. Lower than 0 degrees F
    Explanation
    Field welding should not be performed when the ambient temperature is lower than 0 degrees F because extremely cold temperatures can affect the quality and integrity of the weld. Cold temperatures can cause the metal to become brittle and increase the risk of cracking or failure. Therefore, it is important to avoid welding in such low temperatures to ensure the weld is strong and durable.

    Welding out of position with an EXX2X rod can cause?

    • A.

      Spatter

    • B.

      Overheating

    • C.

      Incomplete penetration

    • D.

      Undercut

    Correct Answer
    D. Undercut
    Explanation
    Welding out of position with an EXX2X rod can cause undercut. Undercut is a type of weld defect where the base metal along the edges of the weld joint is melted and removed, creating a groove or depression. This can weaken the weld and compromise its integrity. Welding out of position, such as welding vertically or overhead, increases the likelihood of undercut due to the gravitational pull on the molten metal. Using an improper welding rod, like the EXX2X rod mentioned, can also contribute to undercutting as it may not provide sufficient control over the weld pool.

  • 14. 

    A break in the arrow shaft of a weld symbol would have significance in a ______________?

    • A.

      Bevel or j-groove

    • B.

      None

    • C.

      Bevel only

    • D.

      J-groove only

    Correct Answer
    A. Bevel or j-groove
    Explanation
    A break in the arrow shaft of a weld symbol would have significance in a bevel or j-groove. This is because the arrow shaft represents the location and direction of the weld, and a break in the arrow shaft indicates that the weld is not continuous along the entire length of the joint. In a bevel or j-groove joint, a break in the arrow shaft would indicate that the weld does not extend to the root of the joint, which could affect the strength and integrity of the weld.

      NEVER

    • D.

      DCRP

    Correct Answer
    D. DCRP
    Explanation
    When using the SMAW process, the electrode is positive only when using DCRP (Direct Current Reverse Polarity). In this polarity, the electrode is connected to the negative terminal of the power source, and the workpiece is connected to the positive terminal. This configuration allows for deeper penetration and better control over the weld pool. It is important to note that when using AC (Alternating Current), the polarity of the electrode constantly changes, and when using DCSP (Direct Current Straight Polarity), the electrode is connected to the positive terminal.

      Voltage

    • B.

      Current

    • C.

      Stickout

    • D.

      Arc length

    Correct Answer
    B. Current
    Explanation
    In GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding), the welding variable controlled by the wire feed speed is the current. The wire feed speed determines the rate at which the welding wire is fed into the weld pool. This, in turn, affects the amount of current flowing through the wire and ultimately determines the heat input and penetration of the weld. By adjusting the wire feed speed, the welder can control the current and, consequently, the quality and strength of the weld.
