Circumferential scanning by UT

Q. Circumferential angle beam scanning is carried out form OD surface using 60 Degree shear wave angle beam probe on a tubular forging whose OD is 400mm and ID is 320 mm. The effective coverage in this scan is ?

I have used the formula for above question is
X=OD/2(1-SIN60)

but couldnt get the answer

am I correct?

help me..

The following formulas can be used to determine the refracted angle and impinging angles for circumferential scans.

a.) To determine the refracted angle of the shear wave from the probe, use the following formula:
sin › 1 = (sin › 2 * Velocity Shear)/Velocity Longitudinal

b.) To determine the impinging angle at the ID surface, use the following formula:
sin › 2 = sin › 1 * (Inner Diameter)/Outer Diameter

GOWRISANTHOSH

ID radius / OD radius = Sin-1 (maximum angle use for inspection)
160mm / 200mm = 0.8 = 53.1°

90° - 53.1° = 36.9° (angle spread between surface and maximum angle used for inspection)

1° = WT / Sin-1 (ID radius / OD radius)
40mm (WT) / 36.9° = 1.084mm per degree

90° - 60° (your probe angle) = 30°
30° * 1.084mm = 32.52mm

Hi,
In EPOCH 600 from Olympus is "CSC" function, if you enter Outer Diameter for example 400mm and thickness 80 mm he will calculate right angle and sound path (trigonometry).

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
