Oh boy.

If you are performing UT yourself, or are responsible in any way... stop. Just stop the job right now and admit to your client that you clearly do not know what you are doing.

Now that I have that off my chest, if perhaps you are observing the UT inspection portion of the job from the sidelines and are merely just interested in the inspection process... Google. Before asking vague, dangerously ignorant questions on a public forum, simply do a search for UT weld inspection and reap the benefit of the seemingly endless source of knowledge the internet can provide from numerous reputable sources in the past 25 years.

The NDT experts are happy to help, provided you do some legwork on your own first.
