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?
