ASTM E428 – 08(2013)

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

The reference blocks described are suitable for use with either the direct-contact method or immersion pulse-echo ultrasonic methods. Additional procedures and controls may be required when fabricating reference blocks from other than carbon or alloy steel material.

This practice shall in no way preclude the speci? This practice, however, must not be confused with, nor does it supersede Practice Especi? Unlike this practice, Practice E has requirements for evaluation relative to a speci?

Summary of Practice 4.

Additional supplemental requirements may be needed when using this practice to fabricate reference blocks from other types of materials or with larger diameter holes. The physical characteristics of the hole may be established by evaluating plastic replicas.

It must be recognized however that there are limitations on the size hole r428 may be replicated and evaluated.

In cases of materials that are acoustically transparent to the extent that this requirement cannot be satis? The acoustic noise level from the material is not to be confused with inherent electrical instrument noise often observed when the system sensitivity is adjusted to its maximum level range.

At frequencies such as 5. Block sets conforming to customary commercial practice are grouped as follows: The following machining sequence is recommended: NOTE 2—This practice may be used to produce blocks with?

The replica shall indicate that the hole bottom is?

For record purposes, the replica may be projected on a comparator screen and photographed as shown in Fig. Checking Ultrasonic Response Characteristics 8. If the ultrasonic-response characteristics are to be established by immersion techniques, the drilled? It is recommended that blocks fabricated as sets be compared with each other to determine their relative ultrasonic-response characteristics. This is particularly desirable in the cases of sets containing?

Without changing any examination parameters, the ultrasonic response from the remaining blocks with both smaller and larger size re?

Without changing any test parameters, the ultrasonic response from the remaining blocks with both shorter and longer distances are plotted on the response curve. Under no circumstances may the FBH be altered to change the ultrasonicresponse characteristics of the reference block.

Therefore, consideration should be given to the operating characteristics of the search unit and instrument generally available from the equipment manufacturer when evaluating the response curves from the reference blocks. The curve may vary when the examination is performed at other frequencies with different diameter search units and different water path distances or if a contact test method is used.


For example, the identi? Where several sets and types of blocks are being used, a serial number identi?

An adequate air gap must be maintained at the hole bottom. The curve may vary when the test is performed at other frequencies with different diameter search units and different water-path distances or if a contact test method is used.
