A Study of Weld Porosity in Containers for the Storage of Plutonium Containing Materials

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An autogenous GTAW closure weld was developed for the Department of Energy's (DOE) primary container for the storage of plutonium-bearing materials. The occurrence of porosity at the tie-in point of the closure weld was investigated. The primary cause of the porosity was linked to the geometry at the root of the closure weld joint. This paper describes the mechanistic model that was developed to describe and predict the porosity.
