want to ask something in UT-phased array

1. For acceptance/ reject the welds, are we
i)comparing the amplitude of a surface notch (code requirement)
or
ii)measuring the depth of root penetration.

2.Cause of insufficient root penetrant.
i)root Gap?
ii)Weld current?
iii)welding speed?
iv)or other reason

Hi,
You should consult the spec for calibration requirements. The incomplete penetration is most likely due to insufficient current, however, torch angle and travel speed can play a definite role in your problem.
