Notes on ASME Code case 2235-9

CC2235 is on "Use of Ultrasonic Examination in Lieu of Radiography Section I; Section VIII, Divisions 1 and 2; and Section XII"

CC2235-9 can be found at http://cstools.asme.org/csconnect/PDF/CodeCases/966.pdf

The _long_ route to find it is as follows:
Go to www.asme.org
Click on Codes and Standards > Publications > BPVC Resources
Then click on "Code Cases of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code"
Do a search for Code case 2235.
Then click "View the Code Case File" at the bottom.

CHANGES FROM 2235-6 TO -8
This is based on my own visual examination, and I wear magnifiers, so this is not the official word.
- Addition of alternate, metric values
- Addition of page 1, footnote 1 — recommendations on phased array
- Changes to the acceptance criteria in Table 1, right column
- Addition of note (c) to Table 2
- One number changed in Table 3 second from bottom line
- 2235-9 has revised references to other paragraphs

... and Section (i)(1) still says "flow" instead of "flaw".

Re: Notes on ASME Code case 2235-9
Thanks for the tip, David. Potentially useful that phased array is now permitted by the Code. Additional training and certification costs await, apart from those lucky few with enlightened employers.

Regards

Nigel
