I want to qualify welders for FCAW. There are two options for welder qualifications, either bend test or radiography. Does the Radiography test is mandatory or Ultrasonic test can be done in place of Radiography ?
RT is better suited for testing welded joints that can be accessed from both sides, whereas UT is better suited for thicker joints that are accessible from one side. Assuming you’re referring to D1.1, either RT or UT can be used for WPS qualification, but as far as I know, UT is not an option for welder qualification.
