ASTM WK44467

    New Practice for Examination of Carbon Steel Welds Using Eddy Current Array

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E07.07 | Committee E07 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This practice covers the use of eddy current array sensors for nondestructive examination of carbon steel welds. It describes the ability to detect and size surface-breaking cracks in such joints, accommodating nonmagnetic coating and weld crowns in the as is condition. The practice covers a variety of cracking defects, such as fatigue cracks and other types of planar discontinuities, at various locations in the weld (heat-affected zone, toe, and cap, for example). It includes the accurate length and depth sizing of such surface-breaking discontinuities.
