This specification covers nonfluorescent, magnetic particles in the form of dry powders intended to be suspended in oil or conditioned water vehicle for use in the wet method, magnetic particle inspection.
This specification covers the procedure for ultrasonic inspection of flat, contoured, round and hollow cylindrical products having a cross-sectional thickness of 0.02 to 0.50 inches (0.5 to 12.7 mm). This specification does not apply to inspection of composite materials.
This specification covers procedures for ultrasonic inspection, by pulse-echo procedures, of flat, rectangular, round, cylindrical, and contoured products having a thickness or cross-sectional dimension greater than 0.5 inch (12.7 mm), using either contact or immersion methods, and using the longitudinal-wave or shear-wave modes or combinations of the two, as necessary. This specification may apply to testing finished machined parts provided the parts can meet the basic testability requirements, such as size, contour, metallurgical structure, and thickness.
