Standardization of Ultrasonic NDT from an ASTM Perspective: Past, Present, and Future


ASTM ultrasonic NDT standards developed by Subcommittee E07.06 range in scope from tutorial documents to definitive procedures. The evolution of these has paralleled that of the underlying technology, which is now approaching 50 years of practical application. The chronology of this relationship and its importance in promoting acceptance of the methodology are discussed. The scope and status of current standards, in-process revisions, developmental documents, and recommended future projects are reviewed. Some of the many other sources for standards-related documents, both within and outside of ASTM, are summarized.
