ASNT Level-III RT Questions in Exam

First 10 questions were to be replied wrt procedure given along with

Reference data
2 Questions were relating to calculating Equivalent sensitivity using
In one question figure was shown & thickness of penetrameter was to be
selected from given options.
In another question using same figure( shown as example in ASME section V:
2004 subsection B article 22, SE-1025 page no. 276 & 277).
Method of interpreting nomograph was fully explained in given reference

to density

Sensitivity is increasing from A to C, B to C
(Points B & C in graph were not sharp as shown)
Specular density is higher than diffuse density
Definition of Bremsstrahlung employed to denote X-Ray producing
mechanism was given in question. Bremsstrahlung was to be selected from
given options.
Coherent scattering process where photon energy is not changed. Rayleigh

Density increases from 2 to 3. Transmitted light will reduce by 90%

HVT of steel is 1 if 8 of steel shielding is used for Co-60 source of 64 R will

reduce to 0.25 R
Shielding questions asking to reduce exposure rate to 1/100th of original 2TVT
Step wedge exposure & density table was given. HVT was asked
In above question it was asked which given exposure would be higher KV.
Shape of H & D curve is affected by Development was most suitable option
Definition of cold shut, segregation, hot tear and shrinkage with or without
reason was given in four separate questions defects were to be identified.
Very fine discontinuities to be examined in RT using magnifying glass of 3-5 X
Electron emission RT uses Harder X Rays
There were 2 questions for calculating Ug of defect at 2 from top and 1 from
top. SOD, source size and plate thickness was given.


KV is increased from 400 to 500 KV effect on radiograph
Motion un-sharpness depend on : slit width and thickness
If size of source is increased intensity per curie is not following the law due to
self absorption
If film is not properly agitated


Thickness measurement by gamma ray uses the principle of Attenuation

The crystalline structure can be checked by
Pin hole method is used to measure

Diffraction method
effective X-Ray source size

Lead plate containing pin hole should be at : mid of source and film
Pin hole method is used for max KV :

240 KV

In micro radiography it is important to maintain :

smaller source size

Plate type IQIs are used, other most popular type IQI is

wire type

Equivalent sensitivity study guide Level-III Q No. 116

Reticulation caused by Sudden Temp change during processing
Metol, hydroquinoneor phenidone are used to :
Balance the solution
balance the pH
Purpose of fixture is to

dissolve the un developed silver

When a film packet is opened from stored condition and allowed to cool in dark
room temp.
Moisture gets entrapped due to low temp film at dark room
In gas chamber detector gas used is:



When a film has received radiation when it was packed

it will become fogged

Aluminum weld of 5 thickness can be radiographed by : 400KV X-ray

Which one has lowest energy radiation : Cs
( Energy level of all sources was given in reference data)
For Radiography of 10 mm steel which one will be used:
GM counter in high energy field cant read because
