Standard Practice for Immersed Ultrasonic Examination by the Reflection Method Using Pulsed Longitudinal Waves
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Non-destructive testing of metals):||77.040.20|
1.1 This practice describes an ultrasonic examination procedure for detecting discontinuities in material using instruments that transmit and receive pulsed longitudinal ultrasonic waves introduced into the material to be examined while immersed in or impinged upon by a liquid coupling agent. This practice applies to any material that can conduct sound waves of an appropriate frequency, and can be immersed in a liquid coupling agent for inspection, or can be subject to inspection by the use of a column or stream of the couplant between the search unit and the material being examined.
Note 1--Practice E1001 is a complementary document that extends Practice E214 by describing more detailed procedures.
1.2 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.
