1.1 Purpose-This practice establishes the minimum requirements for ultrasonic examination of wrought products.
Note 1: This standard was adopted to replace MIL-STD-2154, 30 Sept. 1982. This standard is intended to be used for the same applications as the document which it replaced. Users should carefully review its requirements when considering its use for new, or different applications, or both.
1.2.1 Wrought Aluminum Alloy Products-Examination
1.3 Acceptance Class-When examination is performed in accordance with this practice, engineering drawings, specifications, or other applicable documents shall indicate the acceptance criteria. Five ultrasonic acceptance classes are defined in Table 1. One or more of these classes may be used to establish the acceptance criteria or additional or alternate criteria may be specified.
(A) Any discontinuity with a response greater than the response from a flat-bottom hole or equivalent notch (see footnote B) at the estimated discontinuity depth and the discontinuity size given is not acceptable.(B) See Fig. 3, Fig. 4, or Fig. 5 for dimensions of notches and holes when these are required for angle beam examination of tube walls and near-surface regions of cylindrical parts and other products.(C) Multipl
1.4 Order of Precedence-Contractu
1.5 Measurement Values-The values stated in inch-pounds are to be regarded as standard. The metric equivalents are in parentheses.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
