Thickness Range B31,3 CHARPY.

Thickness Range B31,3 CHARPY.

Thickness Range B31,3 CHARPY.

Hello Friends:

If I need to perform three charpy tests to cover the entire thickness range required in the project, under B 31.3. (T / 2 TO T + 6). a) These three tests should be included in the PQR that supports the single WPS. I am not sure.
b) In addition, Does the minimum thickness of the WPS will be defined as T / 2 (T smaller specimen thickness tested)?

Thaks for your help.

RE: Thickness Range B31,3 CHARPY.

What are the required thicknesses for your project and then it is easier to explain and answer ?
