Your IQI Selection is based on the nominal single wall thickness of the pipe and the maximum reinforcement permmited by the referencing code section. That is regardless of the technique being used.
That includes the internal root protrusion and cap.
If you are permitted 1.6mm reinfiorcement then you can take credit for 1.6mm for the cap and 1.6mm for the root protrusion for a total of 3.2mm of reinfoecement.

When selecting the IQI whether for a single or double exposure type shot the following concept should be kept in mind:
The IQI is the "gage" that allows us to determine the resolution of an image of our area of interest as required by a given standard. In the case of a double exposure shot on a pipe, even though we are looking at the image of the welds from the nearand far side of the pipe on the radiograph at the same time, the area of interest that we are trying to evaluate is still just one weld bead at a time. In other words we would like to know if defects that would be detrimental to a certain size of weld can be discerned on the image, therefore all of our IQI comparisons are based on just one weld bead (one thickness plus the allowed reinforcement).

Hope this helps,
Juan Amado

The wire type penetrameter or Image Quality Indicator does not give any quantitive value of "radiographic resolution" what it does do is enable the technician to calculate the "sensitivity" i.e the ability to detect small defects. Resolution and sensitivity are two seperate things and should not be confused.
In DWDI (usually employed in dia upto 90mm) the IQI should be placed accross or close to the weld on the "source side" and in selecting IQI size, use single wall thickness + cap + root. Hope this helps.

There are some discrepancies in code and standards on IQI selection in double wall radiography of pipes. In BS EN 462 (1994) and BS EN 1435 (1997), IQI selection for double wall exposure of pipes is always based on the double wall thickness. In ASME BPV section VII (2004) IQI selection for DWDI and DWSI radiography of pipes is always based on the single wall thickness and in BS 5500 (1997), AS 2177 (1982), API 1104 (2001), ISO 19232-1 (2004), CODAP (code of France) and IPC (standard of Iran), IQI selection is based on the weld thickness. Works realized by me show that the IQI should be selected based on the double wall thickness in DWDI and based on the single wall thickness in DWSI. This was in good agreement with some codes and standards such as ASTM E 747 (1990), ASTM E 1742 (1995), JIS Z 2306 (2000) and AD-Merkblatt (Code of Italia).

IQI Selection for DWDI
Dear friends,

Selection of IQI's are varied from materials to materials like group no 1 given based on light and heavy metals.
But how do we select the particular IQI for a given thickness of materials.
For example, 7.11 mm, which type of wire type IQI should be selected? Why?

I need a justification and explanation for this context.

Regards

Dear friend

In DWDI Technique,For pipe reducer both are different in diameter ,so how to calculate the sensitivity and IQI selection?

Hi,

For IQI selection shall be use 1T of pipe, to define exposure time shall be 2T of pipe
how to account sensitivity you can use formula (ASME Art.2 APPENDIX-X1)

α=100/X √ T/2

where:
α=equivalent IQI sensitivity (%)
X= section thickness to be examined (inch)
T=IQI thickness (inch)

Tq,
Sys

@ Mr. Rafza,

Do not worried, in ASME Art. 2 Table T-276 IQI selection can solved your issue,
they have a range of thickness
