a) Step - 1
Determine if there is any surface bulging on either the inside or the outside surface of the component at
the location of the lamination. If there is surface bulging, then evaluate the lamination as a blister using
the Level 2 Assessment method in Part 7.

The inspection report indicates no surface bulging on outside surface of the component
at the location of the lamination.
b) Step - 2
Determine the information in paragraph 13.3.3.1.

the crack depth shall be equal to 2a = Lh and the crack length shall be equal to 2c = max[s.4). .1). otherwise.4 = 1.09.FCA Equation 13. ↘ Inspection report confirmed that no evidence of through-thickness cracking.1252 in Equation 13.3) or Equation (13.5 Determine the wall thickness to be used in the assessment using Equation (13.c) Step . Applying Equation (13. as applicable. Applying Equation (13.1). otherwise. In applying this criterion.2) is satisfied.122 in Therefore As Lh < 0.c ] 1. there is no indication of through thickness cracking and the spacing does not satisfy Equation (13.149 in Therefore As Ls is greater than 2tc therefore Equation-13.1 Where 3.2 0.20 in Lh = 0.0626 in f) Step .1): Ls 2 tc > = = Ls = 2 x tc 2 x ( trd . In this evaluation.c ] Equation 13. then the laminations shall be combined into a single larger lamination in the assessment. then the group of laminations shall be evaluated as equivalent HIC damage using the Level 2 Assessment method in Part 7.3): tc = trd . Max [ s.2): i) = = Where Lamination 1 Lh < 0.6 If all of the following conditions are satisfied. 1) There is no indication of through-thickness cracking.FCA ) 2. Applying Equation (13.max[s.c] therefore Equation-13. the lamination is not acceptable per the Level 2 Assessment procedure.4 If Equation (13. proceed to STEP 5. If there are two or more laminations at different depths in the wall thickness of the component and the spacing does not satisfy Equation (13.09 . proceed to STEP 7.1 is Satisfied Both laminations are on the same plane There is no indication of through thickness cracking d) Step . the spacing shall be measured parallel to the wall thickness.3 If there are two or more laminations on the same plane.2 is Satisfied for Lamination -1 e) Step .09 . evaluate the through-thickness component of the lamination as a crack-like flaw using the Level 2 Assessment method in Part 9.c].
