I have been given a weld plate that is 1"x15"x36" long. its a CJP with a backing plate. Its a "internal" WPS qualification test. During UT a 2 inch section of lack of fusion was found in the test plate. A report was issued for the rejected plate. A few hours later the plate was back in our possession, with the rejected section cut out. Can this be possible? If a plate fails UT, even if its a small section, doesn't this need to be repaired? Can they just cut the bad section out and say the plate is good??
