RR301 - Replacement of Radiography

This report describes the work performed on the project "Replacement of Radiography by Ultrasonic Inspection" funded by the HSE. This thirteen months project started in April 2003. The objective was to provide guidelines on the extent to which ultrasonic testing can replace radiography for welds where radiography is currently the preferred inspection method. This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
