New Classification for Standard Digital Reference Images for High-Strength Copper-Base and Nickel-Copper Alloy Castings

1. Scope

The scope of the Committee includes the promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research and the development of standard specifications, test methods, practices, guides, reference radiographs, terminology, and classifications relating to nondestructive testing (NDT) methods, equipment and applications. NDT methods addressed include X-and gamma radiology, neutron
radiology, liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, acoustic emission, ultrasonic, electromagnetic, leak testing, visual/optical examination, and other emerging NDT methods as may be considered appropriate by the Committee. The Committee also addresses requirements for NDT laboratory or agency quality systems, but does not develop standards for the certification of personnel performing nondestructive testing. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM technical committees and
other national and international organizations having mutual or related interests.


aluminum bronze; casting discontinuities; copper; copper-nickel; gamma ray; manganese bronze; manganese-nickel-aluminum bronze; nickel-aluminum; nickel-copper; reference radiographs; X-ray


The proposed standard will allow suppliers and purchasers to exploit the economic advantages of digital radiographic technology. If allowed by the purchaser, the proposed standard may be used by anyone currently using E272.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
