The work deals with non-destructive ultrasonic testing of butt and circumferential fillet welds in the repairing of gas pipelines.

The new ultrasonic technique Phased Array was used for testing. This paper describes a series of experiments of conventional ultrasonic and phased array testing on thin butt welded sections with simulated flaws using the procedures described in BS EN ISO and BS EN but allowing the use of high frequency and small probes easily available in the market.

The results show that the procedures of BS. Nondestructive Tests of Welds in Ship HU1l Structures” for radiographic inspection and should therefore result in satis-factory ship welds. Occasions may arise where radiographic inspection could provide additional information.

TEST METHOD General - The procedures given apply to the contact ultrasonic inspection of butt welds. Weld inspection isFile Size: KB. Common techniques are Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) and Time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD). PAUT, by deploying sophisticated procedure development, can detect planar embedded flaws along with contamination and cold fusions.

The method gives full volumetric data of the weld that is installed as a permanent record. This paper summarises work at TWI on NDT of butt fusion welds in polyethylene and compares this work with results from other published literature on this topic.

The major objectives of this study were to develop ultrasonic and radiographic testing procedures for the inspection of butt fusion welds in polyethylene pipe systems.

For general technique relating to ultrasonic testing, reference may be made to IS ‘Code of practice for ultrasonic pulse echo testing by contact and immersion methods @st revision). This standard gives detailed procedure of examination of butt welds in ferritic steel.

ficulties for ultrasonic testing than ferritic ones, the preparation of ultrasonic procedures requires more attention. In "general, it is considered of great importance that operators should be in-formed about relevant details of weld fabrication, as given in section Particular written proce-dures which specify the examination conditions.

Well, it's pretty simple: A properly welded fillet weld will always have a "crack" in it. Think about it: A (full-penetration) butt weld will be solid metal through the weld.

A UT signal will go through the first metal, through the weld, through the second metal, then. Re: Ultrasonic testing in fillet weld In Reply to seyed meeran at Dec Conventional UT of such welds is also possible - see for example the classic book "Ultrasonic Testing of Materials" of Krautkramer brothers, there is a paragraph dedicated to the topic.

book the elements set forth in Section 6, Part F and paragraph S3 of Annex S of the American Welding Society Standard D Structural Welding Code-Steel and the applicable requirements of AWS D Section 6, Part F and paragraph K3 of Annex K. However, as the butt weld area is located on the root of the blade, it is difficult to achieve this structure’s in-service inspection by traditional ultrasonic inspection methods because of the complex surface, the narrow space and the high requirement of inspection precision.

Accordingly, a new inspection method for the blade welded by. This practice uses angle beams, either in S-scan or E-scan modes, primarily for butt welds and Tee welds. Alternative welding techniques, such as solid state bonding (for example, friction stir welding) and fusion welding (for example, electron beam welding) can be examined using this practice, provided adequate coverage and techniques are documented and approved.

Ultrasonic testing indications found to be within ± 1/16 in. (4 mm) of a weld fusion plane are to be evaluated with 45 to 60 or degree transducers to characterize the type of flaw — Fig. Do not forget to do this from the opposing weld inspection face.

Ultrasonic Testing Ultrasonic Testing of welds uses high-frequency sound waves (typically in the range between and 15 MHz) to conduct examinations and ma.

Visual inspection is a popular weld quality inspection method and is one of the most common Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods.

It involves a visual testing of welds and is capable of detecting surface-breaking defects, as many welding flaws are on the surface and can easily be detected via this Welding Procedure and Welder Qualification Testing procedure. Ultrasonic testing instrument shall be calibrated for the examination and shall be capable of meeting the requirements of screen height linearity and amplitude control linearity in paragraph & of this procedure.(Trade name of ultrasonic testing instrument is krautkramer USN) Ultrasonic testing instrument shall be equipped with.

Ultrasonic Testing of Structural Welds DEXTER A. OLSSON, Bethlehem Steel Corporation During the past five years Bethlehem Steel Corporation has de­ veloped and applied techniques for the ultrasonic testing of butt welds which provides an assurance of weld quality similar to that achieved with radiography.

Although there are no revolu­. Procedure In this test programme, multipass butt welds were made in a variety of steels, at near threshold hydrogen cracking conditions, and the development of hydrogen cracking was monitored using ultrasonic examination. For the majority of the work, welds were stop ended bead in.

Bridge Division.]. The Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Level I course includes a basic introduction to the theory and principles of ultrasound including frequency, velocity, and wavelength. It addresses the variables related to the propagation, reflection, and attenuation of sound as well as the responses from discontinuities.

This handbook covers the ultrasonic inspection of austenitic butt welds. However, the guidelines and recommendations are relevant to welds of most configurations. The objective of the handbook is to inform all those involved in the volumetric examination of austenitic welds of the limitations caused by the acoustic properties of the material.

Specifically, FEMAPart I, Chapter 5, requires that moment–frame welded connections be scanned to the procedures prescribed in AWS D, Annex K for UT flaw detection and sizing. Also, ultrasonic technicians are required to demonstrate proficiency on weld joint mock–ups that include butt, corner, and T configurations.

This practice 2 describes general ultrasonic testing procedures for the detection of discontinuities in the weld and adjacent heat affected zones of welded pipe and tubing by scanning with relative motion between the search unit and pipe or tube. When contact or unfocused immersion search units are employed, this practice is intended for tubular products having specified outside diameters.

Ultrasonic testing of steel and flat product of thickness equal or greater than 6 mm (reflection method) EN ISO Non-destructive testing – Qualification and certification of NDT personnel EN ISO Non-destructive testing of welds – Ultrasonic testing – Acceptance levels. is a need for RT (and particularly DRT) procedure and personnel qualification for nuclear power plant (NPP) weld inspection applications.
