Reliable ultrasonic testing of weldments can be accomplished if the variables affecting the test method are adequately controlled. To establish this reliability, the inspector must be thoroughly familiar with test parameters. In this report methods to determine and control test parameters for ultrasonic inspection of weldments are discussed in detail, instrument and transducer calibration standards are described, and defect evaluation standard are discussed and illustrated. Methods to locate and identify internal defects are presented together with those for reporting test results, and techniques for inspecting different joint configurations are illustrated.
