Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 August 2003
Status: inactive
Page Count: 23
ICS Code (Welded joints and welds): 25.160.40
scope:

This practice covers techniques for the ultrasonic A-scan examination of specific weld configurations joining wrought ferrous or aluminum alloy materials to detect weld discontinuities (Note 1). The reflection method using pulsed waves is specified. Manual techniques are described employing contact of the search unit through a couplant film or water column.

This practice utilizes angle beams or straight beams, or both, depending upon the specific weld configurations. Practices for special geometries such as fillet welds and spot welds are not included. The practice is intended to be used on thicknesses of 0.250 to 8 in. [6.4 to 203 mm].

NOTE 1 - This practice is based on experience with ferrous and aluminum alloys. Other metallic materials can be examined using this practice provided reference standards can be developed that demonstrate that the particular material and weld can be successfully penetrated by an ultrasonic beam.

NOTE 2 - For additional pertinent information see Practice E 317, Terminology E 1316, and Practice E 587.

Values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. SI units are given for information only.

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.
