This practice covers a procedure for fabricating aluminum alloy ultrasonic standard reference blocks that can be used for assessing performance of ultrasonic testing equipment and for standardization and control of ultrasonic tests of aluminum alloy products using pulsed longitudinal waves introduced into test material either by the direct-contact method or by the immersion method. (1-18).2
NOTE 1-Practice E428 and Guide E1158 also describe procedures for selecting material, fabricating blocks, and checking response.
