EN Standards for Visual Testing

Would you inform me the list of EN Standards related with Visual & Optical Testing ?
and, What would be the most basic one for VT, like EN583 of UT ?

Thank you.

I am not aware of a standard for corrosion patterns and in retrospect I should have referred to them as advanced artificial flaws.
Crack-like notches and corrosion patterns are made by EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining). Visual comparison is obviously possible to see if it resembles the real flaw but more detailed information can be attained from the inspection report. For example average Pit Depths (wall loss), hemi-spherical radii, EDM texture Rz, material specs, and wall thickness and more. Our expertise is in manufacturing calibration standards for UT and ET.
Thanks for your response let me know if you need more info. Charly.

Here is something to read:
EN 13018 NDT, Visual testing, General principles
EN 1330-10 Vocabulary- Part 10: Terms used in visual testing
EN 13927 NDT, Visual testing, Equipment
EN 970 (corresponding ISO 17637) Non-destructive examination of fusion welds- Visual examination
EN 12454 Founding- Visual examination of surface discontinuities - Steel sand castings

Re: EN Standards for Visual Testing In Reply to Jukka Hakala at 22:39 Jun-17-2009 .

Hello,
in the European Standards system for each NDT method generally there are standards on: the Basics - Terminology - Procedures - Acceptance levels - Equipment - Calibration material.
For Visual Testing (VT) Jukka Hakal has listed most of them.
I only want to add:
EN 13100-1:1999 - Non destructive testing of welded joints of thermoplastics semi-finished products - Part 1: Visual examination;
Additionally there are numerous EN's on products, where VT is required: for textiles, for wood, for asphalt pavements, for electronic devices, for optical fibres, etc.
Only two examples:
EN 14480:2002 - Metallic industrial piping - Part 5: Inspection and testing;
EN ISO 945-1:2008 - Microstructure of cast irons - Part 1: Graphite classification by visual analysis (ISO 945-1:2008);

Best regards
Udo Schlengermann
