Phased Array Coupling Monitoring in unequal thickness joints configuration

In Phased Array assembly set in Amplitude Mode System - Sectorial Scan.
During inspection of circumferential welds of diam. 6mt Piles where the thickness of the two section is unequal , which kind of system can be used in the side where the 1:4 slope is present? 0 deg is not usable due to slope geometry.
Is it possible to generate lateral wave to transmit at the opposite site probe that will receive and display?

Dear Max,
to check coupling only,you have to send a beam bouncing at 90° degrees on wall thickness axe,so you must calculate an incident angle compensating the slope axe angle.But be careful working on slopes is very hard and dangerous because,in the same way for conventional UT,slopes "shift" all angles an reflections,so is very hard reach good results.
Best regads,

Sorry,I mean 90 degrees from backwall axle,I used a wrong word

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
