ISO/FDIS 9017, Destructive tests on welds in metallic materials - Fracture test: minor revision approved !

This International standard, previously published in 2001, specifies the sizes of test specimen and the procedures for carrying out fracture tests in order to obtain information about types, sizes and distribution of internal imperfections such as porosities, cracks, lack of fusion, lack of penetration and solid inclusions on the fracture surface.
This International Standard applies to metallic materials in all forms of product with joints made by any fusion welding process with a thickness greater or equal to 2 mm.

Following the systematic review carried ou in 2016, a minor revision of the document was proposed in order to update normative references.

The version updated should be released in the beginning of 2018.
