Hi,
Backgouge means 'removal weld metal and parent metal from welded portion at root side to avoid LOP and LOF for subsequent welding. This will be done with grinding and arc cutting.
It will help you i hope.

Re: backgouge
When a thick plate is welded , usually a double vee joint is welded. After welding from one side the second is back gouged and the welding performed inorder to get sound weld.
