Macro test tube-fin welds

Macro test tube-fin welds

Macro test tube-fin welds

Please. I have to qualify a Welding Procedure according with ASME code and EN 15613.
The mockup is tube ø57x4.5 mm P235GH welded to 2 fins thickness 6 mm S235JR.
The process used is FCAW Mechanized.
Are these the macro test according with standards ? (apart other tests)

EN 15613:
• 2 Macros tests. The standard doesn´t define the number of macro tests exactly. I am thinking to make 2 macro test similar to EN 15614

• 4 macros. Is the case 181.1.1 welds of plate-shapes?. Is the fin a shape?

Can be used the macros in according with ASME to qualify macros in according with EN?

Thank you in advance.
