STANDARDIZATION OF AUTOMATIC ULTRASONIC TESTING OF STEEL WELDS IN JAPAN

In Japan, a task group on automatic ultrasonic testing for welds was organized in 1976; the group subsequently produced NDIS 2407-76, a standard for automatic flaw detection in steel welds. This paper presents the text of the standard, which prescribes the scanning method of probes and their designation, classification of recording methods, functions and performance that the instruments should display, ways of routine operation and related matters. Prescriptions for automatic testing of steel pipes at steel manufacturing plants and the same testing at atomic power plants are excluded from this standard.
