ASME B31.3 does not specifically address burn through. Figure 341.3.2 depicts "Typical Weld Imperfections". You may want to approach your Engineering Department about this. Otherwise, I would probably evaluate it as Root Concavity.

Re: burn through rt interpretation
Just noticed this (after all these months!) and I recalled all the cut-out samples of burn-through I saw a few years ago. Remember burn-through is not just wrong welding parameters, its total loss of control of the weld pool/fusion process because of too much heat and molten metal and too little backing support, so the whole weld pool just blows away. It causes ugly messes in the weld root, ragged, uneven, snotty - nothing like a nice bit of regular even root concavity. The samples were accompanied by their radiographs and AUT scans. Guess what - the radiographs showed them up real clear as just the ugly messes the cut-out samples showed them to be - the AUT hardly picked them up, just a few litle hits in the root! Of course with pulse-echo always supplemented by TOFD nowadays then the TOFD should show it up - shouldnt it?

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
