New Practice for Digital Reference Images for Steel Fusion Welds

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.

Keywords

Digital Radiography; Reference Images; Steel; Welds

Rationale

This will be a document to communicate types and severities of discontinuities in steel fusion welds when performing digital X-ray or gamma-ray imaging. While it will not establish acceptance criteria, it can be used by other documents to communicate acceptance criteria.

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