Welding in Shipbuilding

As you probably already read in my post regarding Welding in Ship Design, Hull Design engineers only propose a minimum, theoretical design throat thickness.

And even if they would want to provide the accurate one, most of them are not acquainted with the on-site procedures.

As follows, Shipbuilding engineers assume the responsibility to deliver a “real” throat. The real throat >= theoretical design throat.

Welding is the most important process in shipbuilding. Do you want to know why?

Because welding, as a process, is used in every single step of building a ship. Thus, it is considered the most defect prone process in shipbuilding.

For those working for Ship Design companies, it all starts at with Basic Design documentation related to Welding:

The ship’s hull unit was ready for the final inspection. The structural inspector calls the foreman to ask some questions.
