FOREWORD

The correction Slips (CSs) to various codes and manuals pertaining to the
Engineering Department are being issued by various nodal authorities, which have
been nominated by the Railway Board. There had been reports that the same were
not reaching the concerned officials down line.

It was, therefore, decided by the Railway Board (M.E) vide letter No. 2004/
CE-II/CS/1 dated 05-02-04 that in addition to the issue of CSs by nodal authorities
as per extant practice, the same shall also be compiled and published in the form
of a booklet twice a year, genrally i.e. on 30 th June and 31 st December by IRICEN
and re-circulated to the Railways, containing the CSs issued during the preceding
six months. Since number of Correction slips issued to various manuals from July
2009 to December 2010 were very less, it was decided that the compendium will
not be published in Jan. 2010. Therefore correction slips issued for July 2009 to
June 2010 have been included in the present compendium. Incidentally, the correction
slips to various codes and manuals are posted an IRICEN website also immediately
after reciept in IRICEN and the members can have an access to these after login
through their password.

This is the Seventh volume containing CSs issued during the period between
01 st July 2009 to 30th June 2010. The pages have been printed on one side only, so
as to facilitate tearing/pasting/updating the codes and manuals by the concerned
officials. The contents are also available on the IRICEN website www.iricen.gov.in

ADDENDUM & CORRIGENDUM SLIP NO. 05 OF MAY 2010


(Issued under RDSO's letter No. CT/USFD dt. 26.05.2010)

1. Para 8.2.2(d) is modified as follows :


"8.2.2 (d) A pair of two 700/2 MHz probes at 200 side looking with respect
to usual beam path. Side looking angle of both probes shall be in opposite
direction to each other.
2. Para 8.8 is modified as follows:
8.8 700/2MHz Side Looking (SL) probe:
This procedure shall be used for the detection of half moon shaped
transverse defect with a pair of 70 0 side looking probes using trans-
mitter-receiver method.
8.8.1 Range calibration: The equipment shall be set for a depth range of
150mm shear wave.
8.8.2 Sensitivity setting: Set Range - 150 mm, Velocity- 3250 mm/sec, Mode-
Double crystal and Angle — 700. Connect cables of side looking probes to
transmitter & receiver socket in such a way that direction of side looking
crystal face is inward i.e. towards simulated half moon shaped defect.
Place the 70 0 side looking ( Tx and Rx) probes on the upper zone of the
flange at a distance of 85 mm on either side of flange (Fig.25). Move the
probes slowly in slight zigzag manner towards the weld upto a distance of 20
mm from weld collar. Set the signal obtained from simulated half moon
defect to 60% of full screen height with the help of gain control switch. This
gain setting will be utilized during testing of the weld.
8.8.3 Test procedure: Place the transmitter and receiver 700 side looking probes
at positions as mentioned in Para 8.8.2. Move the probes slowly in zigzag
manner towards the weld. The position of transmitter and reciever probes
from a defect signal may vary depending upon the location of half moon defect.
This exercise shall also be done from other side of the weld.
8.8.4 Defect Clasification : The defect signal of height 20% of full screen height
or more shall be treated as defective AT welded joint (DFW).

3. 700 2 MHz (8mm x 8mm) probe' is replaced by '700/2MHz SL probe' in Para


6.5.2, Para 6.6, table of Para 6.6 & Para 6.8.2.1, Para 8.1(b) and Para 8.11.1.

4. Existing Fig. 25 is replaced with modified Fig 25 enclosed.


5. Para 9.4 (vi) is modified as follows :
"vi) The equipment is now calibrated for death range of 50mm per main scale
division (for machine having 5 main division on horizontal scale) of longitudinal
wave and gain of the UFD is set separately for conducting the test using 450
and 700 probes."
