UT of Rail
Thanks Chris.This is Ultrasonic testing of rails at manufacturing stage.If you have information about UT of flash butt welded rails(i.e. after welding) that'll be also big support for me.

Thanks,

i've only performed ut on rail welds (thermite). the procedure i wrote was based on API-RP-2X, & ASME V. these welds are more like a cast weld. what we did was cut a sample of rail with a weld that passed RT, used a half v, full v and 1.5 v for distance cal. side drilled 1/16" holes and a dac curve for acceptance. if i remember correctly, the area of inspection was only in the top head and web of the rail. hope this helps
