Weld defects

What are the differences between porosity and gas pore in weld defects? What are the significant technical differences? Please kindly share your suggestions.

Muthukumaran,
Some context on the reason behind your question would be helpful. In my mind they are essentially the same type of flaw - the only potential difference being "porosity" is likely considered a cluster of smaller gas-filled voids, while "gas pore" may have been used to describe a single isolated gas-filled void.

In my opinion, the terminology in industrial applications where NDT is used is often a source of confusion. Castings are a good example (although not the subject of your question). If you have a movement/loss of sand in the cope of a sand casting, then that is often called a "scab" (but may also be called a "sag" or a "drop" depending on the book you reference). What is a "buckle" or a "rat-tail" you might wonder - well those are less-severe versions of scabs that don't yet merit that name.

Dear Muthukumaran,

According to ISO 6520-1:2017, Welding and allied processes — Classification of geometric imperfections
in metallic materials — Part 1: Fusion welding
Page 8:

Gas Pore: gas cavity of essentially spherical form.

There are about 18 types of porosities listed in that document. I have attached a summary here.

I read somewhere (in a textbook) that categorized gas pores as spherical porosities with diameter smaller than 1.5mm. But so far, I was not able to find it.
