UT Acceptance Criteria

I seem to recall some code in which the acceptance criteria depends on which third of the weld the defect lies in (top third, bottom third, or middle third). I dont recall what code this is, can some one please refresh my memory. I do remember that you could basically have a lot of defects in the middle third due to the low stress in that area, (neutral axis).

Re: UT Acceptance Criteria
You may be thinking of ASME Section XI, where the lower or inner one third is inspected with volumetric methods (UT/RT) and the upper or outer one third with surface methods (MT/PT/VT). Acceptance criteria is based on size of recorded indications (length) and location.

I believe what you may be referring to is ANSI/AWS D1.1 or its Canadian cousin CSA W59. For some of the techniques, different angle beams are specified for the top quarter, middle half and bottom quarter.

Re: UT Acceptance Criteria
No its not D1.1 or W59, that refers to scanning techniques, what I was referring to was when an indication is found, the location (top, middle or bottom third) will determine whether its rejectable since each section has different requirements, as I said earlier I am pretty sure you are allowed a lot in the middle third due to the lower stresses.
