Hi,

I have done a few type of joint as mentioned, But the thickness of chord used to be from 34 to 40 mm. I have not heared about the 95 mm thick chord.

In our case we used a 22*20 mm crystal 45 degree & , 70 degree 8*9 mm Krautkrammer probes between 0-1 skip.

Regards

J.K

Structural codes generally apply in this application look to AWS D1.1 or API RP 2X for guidance.

you need to be certified to UT TKY API RP 2X specs to carry out this particular job.

Anyway, a 45,60 and 70 degree with a lower frequency and a large diameter probe is appropriate enough to carry out a UT inspection on this thickness.

A Full scan (full skip with a 45 and 60 and a half skip with a 70) is carried out on the chord section. And a 45 full skip scan is carried out on the Rack section particularly looking for toe and root cracks
