    The availability of non-destructive testing hardware capable of controlling large numbers of elements has made possible forays into two-dimensional ultrasonic arrays. Here, we explore two such arrays. The first is a conical matrix array for three-dimensional imaging of fastener holes in aircraft...

    A phased-array ultrasonic system was developed by R/D Tech mainly to improve the probability of detection and reduce the number of probes needed to inspect billets that come in a wide variety of diameters. The dynamic depth (DDF) technique is used to expand the depth of field of the probe and...

    The identification of flaw signals in ultrasonic testing of welded joints is quite often very difficult in the angle beam testing of welded joints due to the presence of geometric reflectors, such as weld roots and counter bores, generating non-relevant signals. This paper describes a new...

    Ultrasonic imaging provides information about the breaks in the medium. Still, when the distance between consecutive reflectors is small with regard to the insonification wavelength, it is impossible to distinguish those close reflectors in the data. In this paper, we show how the use of...

    For the ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation, it is of primary importance to understand the wave propagation process from defects. In this study, the scattered waves from a cavity with a sub-surface inner crack are calculated by the boundary element method. The scattered wave motion in the...
