Can I use "resulted as" the way it is used in this sentence?

"Last week, the dye penetrant test was performed to measure the surface crack, which resulted as 3 mm."

I see this usage of "resulted as" in some scientific papers, but I'm not sure if it's actually grammatically correct.

It's a little awkward to me but I have seen this in papers so I would say it's okay (although this is operating on the assumption that usage makes something correct). However, I can't really make this make sense in other contexts.
