    Withdrawn Rationale:

    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.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E07 on Nondestructive Testing, this practice was withdrawn in May 2007 and replaced by Practice E 1001 for Detection and Evaluation of Discontinuities by the Immersed Pulse-Echo Ultrasonic Method Using Longitudinal Waves.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice² 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 E 1001 is a complementary document that extends Practice E 214 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.
