Ultrasonic welding defect signals are not processed, they are very difficult to identify the pattern of the defect, especially the TOFD welding defect signals are often mixed with noise and lead to confusion between grain noise and small flaws. It is very difficult to interpret the result defect and noise due to larger grain noise. This paper describes the comparative study of matlab simulation results of classic approach signal processing methodology and Split Spectrum Processing (SSP) with
