Hello Mr. Hung,

I beleive you are referring to aircraft wheel tie bolt inspection according to the aircraft maintenance manual (AMM) or component maintenance manual (CMM).

It is unusual for the tie bolts to require FPI. Most require magnetic particle (MPI). In my experience, if no specification is listed, the ASTM (in this case, E1417) is usually an acceptable procedure.

The best thing to do is contact the wheel manufacturer and ask what spec to use.

Please contact me via e-mail if you'd like to discuss further.

Mike

not necessarily that you need ndt procedure for ndt level 3,most important is you know the best ndt method for detectecting defects for tie bolts.you can apply astm the most possible method you can used is magnetic particle inspection.

Re: NDT PROCEDUCE
Gentlemen,

If I may put my two cents worth on this subject. Regarding NDT on aircraft, most manufacturer will have an NDT manual where all the procedures related for the type of aircraft are listed. When it comes to MPI and LPI, Boeing doens't include the procedures for these method in their NDT book, but in the SOP book. Another scenarios that I have seen is that since the wheel are manufactured by someone else (ie not Boeing or Airbus), the procedure for inspecting the wheel and its component most likely will be found in the overhaul manufacturer's manual (ie BF Goodrich).

Hope this can be of help.
Michel
