Mr. Sarvanan, you provide very little information on a topic that is filled with variables.
I can suggest that such a project will probably require a reasonable amount of effort to evaluate feasibility. It may possible to develop a solution; or you may find that, for your particular set of parameters, there is no useful option (yet).
You could do a search on NDT.net to find others working on similar tasks. I located 3 but there are many others

You need to be specific. I suspect you are talking about data on the AUT of Girsth welds joining clad pipe as oppossed to actual manufacturing inspection of the clad pipe itself.

DNV OS-FS-101 starts to discuss this and there are many articles around on the topic. It depends whats the weld is made up of as to how the ultrasonic solution will need to be developed.
