Cracks can be acceptable if an Engineers Critical Assessment is done on them. Its future usefulness has aa435 be decided by designer or client not by UT man.

When we take signal we cut the plate and look with microscope. That is the main a345 you have to ask yourself. Are there more in the material in other places that are too small to detect with the technique you are using? Thanks for all response my question.

Many xstm customers really don’t know what ASTM they ‘need’ to call out or really understand the in-depth NDT side of things — that’s where buying from a company that has excellent inspectors like you might save them big trouble down the road! Csaba; you said “any intermediate reflectors are cause s435 rejection” But we can not do this because we have to work with respect to standard. I personally would not accept the welds unless I had it in writing that the small cracks you saw under macro section were acceptable.

Setup is a 2. It was developed to assure delivery of steel plates free of gross internal discontinuities such as pipe, ruptures, or laminations and is to be used whenever the inquiry, contract, order, or specification states that the plates are to be subjected to ultrasonic examination.


It looks like your backwall signal is far too high it is off screen for the ASTM test. The macro image is awesome — it would appear to me that this crack is a little more than um [0. ASTM reapproved. I again agree with Dent: Realistically do you want material that has detectable cracks in it used for the load bearing parts of a crane truss? The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents, therefore, each system must be used independently of the other.

What is your idea? Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have mentioned to you or anyone else about having any “cracks” or “crack-like” indications allowed. If the indication were to be closer to one surface or the other as opposed to being right in the mid-thickness it may be in an area that could be discarded before machining – have the engineering or design groups look at the drawings.

However if these plates are not subject to high stress or fatigue conditions they could very well be acceptable. If you accept this plate and the crane truss fails and the material is traced back to your company and then to you as the inspector is your butt covered?

When you find many cracks which are barely technically acceptable according to the 75mm diameter area then how do you know what the height is.


Review the drawings with them and determine if this is located in an area closer to one edge or the other where it may be sectioned away before delivery or something.

Standard Specification for Straight-Beam Ultrasonic Examination of Steel Plates

An equivalent standard is one which covers the qualification and certification of ultrasonic nondestructive examination candidates and which is acceptable to the awtm. What size and frequency probe are you using? The equipment shall be of the pulse-echo straight beam type. I personally would count these small cracks as grossly unacceptable because there is obviously a lack of consistent workmanship in these welds. These indications are wstm the middle of the plate.

Our client learned an expensive lesson on UT examination, and testing for end use.

ASTM A435/A435M – 17

Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. What type of material is this Yasin? At the proper sensitivity you may not even see them.

It’s hard to just guess, but I read ASTM-A to be a Specification used to evaluate steel plates such that they can be delivered to a w435 phase with good confidence that there are no GROSS internal defects not the same as discontinuity free and that if any indications are noted, they are not larger in AREA than a 3.
