Advances in Phased Array Ultrasonic Technology Applications
Phased array has also found its way into many new markets and industries. While many of the earlier applications originated in the nuclear industry, new applications such as pipeline inspection, general weld integrity, in-service crack sizing, and aerospace fuselage inspection are becoming quite common. These applications have pushed phased array technology to new and improved levels across the industrial spectrum: improved focusing, improved sizing, better inspections, and more challenging applications. Progress is being made terms of code compliance also. Compared to the time taken for techniques such as TOFD (time-of-flight diffraction) to become integrated into codes, there has been rapid development of codes pertaining to phased array. Advances in Phased Array Ultrasonic Technology Applications provides an update on phased array code development and its implementation worldwide.
Introduction to Phased Array Ultrasonic Technology Applications
This guideline is Olympus NDT's first step to help fill the lack of information between conventional UT and phased array technologies. The guideline is focused on terminology, principles, useful formulas, tables, and charts. This guideline provides an overview of phased array ultrasonic technology, including examples of industrial applications. The guideline is an introduction to phased array ultrasonic technology applications, not a training manual.
Olympus is proud to introduce this new Phased Array Testing field guide as a convenient resource for customers and anyone else interested in phased array technology. It is designed to be an easy-to-follow introduction to ultrasonic phased array testing, both for newcomers and for more experienced users who wish to review basic principles.
Automated Ultrasonic Testing for Pipeline Girth Welds
Olympus NDT, a global innovator in nondestructive testing instruments, is proud to announce the publication of NDT expert E. A. Ginzel's Automated Ultrasonic Testing for Pipeline Girth Welds. This 366-page book provides an overview of the principles of automated ultrasonic testing (AUT) of girth welds, and explains the many parameters that influence the results of these inspections. Ginzel discusses some of the more experimental aspects of the process including sizing and
acceptance criteria, and examines basic AUT concepts as applied by the major players in the industry and considers future enhancements.
