Ultrasonic Inspection (API 1104)

Sec. 11.4.7.2 of API 1104 Twentieth Edition states that "Manual Ultrasonic weld testing shall be performed at a scanning sensitivity of DAC/TCG reference sensitivety plus 6 db min. All indications that exceed 50% of DAC/TCG screen height shall be evaluated. Evaluation sensitivety for manual ultrasonic weld testing should be DAC/TCG sensitivity plus 6 dB with an evaluation level for all indications at 50% of DAC/TCG screen height.

What I interpret from the above statement is: If an indication is found at the evaluation sensitivety of (6db above the DAC/TCG sensitivety) and that indication exceeds 50% of the DAC/TCG screen hieght this indication shall be evaluted to the acceptance standards given in 9.6.2.

What do you think?

Digital Radiography for Concrete Inspection

In the construction industry (buildings, bridges) there is a need for fast non- destructive means,
...
most commonly to locate targets (Pipes, Re-bars, Conduit, Fittings etc.) within concrete structures prior to drilling, cutting or coring. Measuring reinforcements is also performed for static calculations and to detect corrosion problems and damages. Cracks and voids can also be visualized. The examinations are not only restricted to concrete constructions; they can also be applied to reinforced masonry made of natural stones or bricks.
