Aerospace series - Test method for metallic materials - Ultrasonic inspection of tubes

This European Standard specifies the requirements for ultrasonic inspection of tubes in metallic materials with an external diameter  5 mm.
For other cases, the use of this standard is by agreement between the manufacturer and the purchaser.
The purpose of the ultrasonic inspection is the detection of defects within the wall thickness and at the outer and inner surfaces of the tube. The method will detect two dimensional defects in the longitudinal and circumferential directions perpendicular to the tube wall. Where inspection for other types of defects is required, this requirements shall be stated on the order.

Luft- und Raumfahrt - Prüfverfahren für metallische Werkstoffe - Ultraschallprüfung von Rohren

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Anforderungen an die Ultraschallprüfung von Rohren aus metallischen Werkstoffen mit einem Außendurchmesser  5 mm fest.
In anderen Fällen kann diese Norm nach Absprache zwischen Hersteller und Käufer verwendet werden.
Die Ultraschallprüfung dient dazu, Fehler innerhalb der Wanddicke und an den Außen- und Innenflächen der Rohre zu erkennen. Mit dem Verfahren werden zweidimensionale Fehler in Längsrichtung und in Richtung des Umfangs senkrecht zur Rohrwandung erkannt. Wenn eine Prüfung auf andere Fehler erfolgen soll, sollten diese Anforderungen in der Auftragsdokumentation festgehalten werden.

Série aérospatiale - Méthode d'essai applicable aux matériaux métalliques - Contrôle par ultrasons des tubes

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les exigences relatives aux contrôles par ultrasons des tubes en matériaux métalliques de diamètre extérieur  5 mm.
Pour les autres cas, l’utilisation de la présente norme est soumise à l’accord du fabricant et du client.
Le but du contrôle par ultrasons est de détecter les défauts dans l’épaisseur de la paroi et dans les surfaces extérieure et intérieure du tube. La méthode détectera deux défauts dimensionnels dans les directions longitudinale et circonférentielle, perpendiculaires à la paroi du tube. Lorsque des contrôles pour d’autres types de défauts sont exigés, il convient que ces exigences soient indiquées sur la commande.

Aeronavtika - Preskuševalna metoda za kovinske materiale - Ultrazvočno preiskovanje cevi

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve za ultrazvočno preiskovanje cevi pri kovinskih materialih z zunanjim premerom ≥ 5 mm. V drugih primerih se ta standard uporablja po dogovoru med proizvajalcem in kupcem. Namen ultrazvočnega preiskovanja je odkrivanje napak v debelini stene ter na zunanji in notranji površini cevi. Z metodo se bosta preiskali dve dimenzijski napaki v vzdolžni in obodni smeri pravokotno na steno cevi. Kadar je potrebna preiskava drugih vrst napak, naj bi se te zahteve navedle na naročilu.

The tubes shall be inspected automatically and completely i.e. the relative movement of probe and tube under test shall be accomplished with the aid of a manipulator. The corresponding signal amplitudes from the ultrasonic test equipment shall be plotted as a function of the location, e.g. amplitude scans or C-scans. 5 Equipment requirements 5.1 Calibration blocks Calibration blocks as per ISO 7963 or equivalent standards shall be used to check the proper function and characteristics of the ultrasonic test unit and probes. The method of checking the equipment and requirements concerning the calibration blocks shall be agreed between the manufacturer and the purchaser.

EN 3718:2012 (E) 5 5.2 Reference specimens A reference specimen shall be fabricated from a tube consisting of the same material, having the same nominal diameter, wall thickness, surface condition and heat treatment condition as the tubes to be inspected. The selected length of the reference specimen shall be such that it can be tested in the test system described below. The reference specimen shall not have any defects or other irregularities that can produce indications or interfere with the detection of the reference notches. Four reference notches of the same dimensions (depth, width, length) as shown in Figure 1 shall be introduced in each tube. The depth, width and length of the notches are defined in Table 1 and subdivided into classes.

The reference notches shall be rectangular for notches in the longitudinal direction and shall have the shape of a ring segment in the circumferential direction and edge radii ≤ 0,13 mm. The depth of the notch shall correspond to a mean value, measured from the tube surface to the respective penetration depth of the notch. Notch dimensions shall comply with the values specified in Table 1 to within ± 15 %. The notch depth shall be measured from the circular surface to the deepest penetration of the notch. Measurements may be made by replication or by a destructive method on a duplicate notch which has identical ultrasonic response (amplitude within 90 % to 110 % of the reference notch amplitude). In order to have access to notches lying inside the reference specimen, a window may be cut into the opposite tube wall to provide access to the notch. The window shall not be so large as to interfere with the ultrasonic responses from the notch. Each reference specimen shall be identified. The
