Abstract
An acousto-ultrasonic approach is used to explore the damage

development in tensile shear spot welds during fatigue

loading. There is reasonable data to support the hypothesis

that a decrease in an AU signal is indicative of the presence

of an internal crack and could be used for monitoring and

evaluation purposes.
