DEVELOPMENT OF QUALITY ASSURANCE TRAINING MANUAL TO ASSIST IN ESTABLISHING SOUNDNESS REQUIREMENTS FOR ALUMINUM AND STEEL CASTINGS

Samples of aluminum and steel casting flaws most commonly experienced in production were selected to be radiographed in order to develop quantitative and descriptive picture images of various radiographic reference standards. Graphic illustrations of flaw size and flaw distribution for various radiographic reference standards were depicted by using radiographs and associated cross-sectional photo-macrographs. These graphic illustrations of radiographic levels of acceptance will provide meaningful design criteria for establishing realistic standards of acceptance for new material applications. This report also furnishes operational guidance to quality assurance and radiographic personnel in their normal on-the-job duties. (Author)
