    Hola,

    Sigo traduciendo estos documentos técnicos y no se como traducir la palabra "Penetrametro"está en una forma para examinar soldaduras por medio de Rayos X.

    La verdad es la primera vez que escucho ese término incluso en español. Me suena a que es algun tipo de aparato que mide algo.

    Espero que me puedan ayudar :)

    saludos y gracias

    Esos instrumentos se usan sobre todo en la medición de características suelos y terrenos.

    Les llaman "soil penetrometers" y pueden ser estáticos, dinámicos o ambos. :http://www.tecnotest.it/f/en/

    No veo la relación con la técnica de soldadura. Tal vez se trate de otro instrumento,

    Le llamas penetrómetro en el título y penetrámetro en el texto de tu hilo. Cuál es el correcto?

    Gracias por responder Phantom,

    En el documento dice Penetrámetro pero Google lo corrige a Penetrómetro, por lo que la verdad no se cual sería el término correcto.

    Y como dije el documento es un forma donde no hay un contexto en sí, la forma es para llenar los resultados de el examen no destructivo de una soldadura por medio de Rayos X

    Does this word seem appropriate?

    Penetrameter


    "Whether in the shop or in the field, the reliability and interpretive value of radiographic images are a function of their sharpness and contrast. The ability of an observer to detect a flaw depends on the sharpness of its image and its contrast with the background. To be sure that a radiographic exposure produces acceptable results, a gauge known as an Image Quality Indicator (IQI) is placed on the part so that its image will be produced on the radiograph.

    IQI's used to determine radiographic quality are also called penetrameters. A standard hole-type penetrameter is a rectangular piece of metal with three drilled holes of set diameters. The thickness of the piece of metal is a percentage of the thickness of the specimen being radiographed. The diameter of each hole is different and is a given multiple of the penetrameter thickness. Wire-type penetrameters are also widely used, especially outside the United States. They consist of several pieces of wire, each of a different diameter. Sensitivity is determined by the smallest diameter of wire that can be clearly seen on the radiograph.

    A penetrameter is not an indicator or gauge to measure the size of a discontinuity or the minimum detectable flaw size. It is an indicator of the quality of the radiographic technique." (from an article on Nondestructive Weld Examination, http://www.lincolnelectric.com/en-u...theory/Pages/nondestructivie-weld-detail.aspx)
