Aircraft standards

Someone know that standard (ASTM or AMS) are for to perform inspections of Eddy Current and Ultrasonic testing in aircraft sector?

(i.e. for PT is ASTM E1417 or AMS 2647B or MT is ASTM 1444 or AMS 3044)

We perform inspections in engines of EC and UT, but in accordance with specification (SPM) of P&W and GE.

Best regards.

Rafid,
From experience, there is no standard like ASTM or AMS per say. Normally the aircraft manufacturer will write their own standards and each aircraft will come with its own NDT Manual and will be part of the Maintenance Manual Library.

But they do follow ASTM somehow.

  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
