What is Transverse Cracks weld defect? how to determine

Transverse cracks in welding are defects characterized by cracks that propagate perpendicular to the direction of the weld joint. These cracks can occur due to various factors such as high welding stresses, improper welding parameters, hydrogen embrittlement, or inadequate material selection. Transverse cracks can compromise the integrity and strength of the weld joint, leading to catastrophic failure if not addressed. […]
