Element pitch is the published value (usually 0.6mm or 1.0mm).

Pitch (p) = Element width (e) + gap (g)

If you want actual element width (e), you'll need to find the gap (g) value.

A simple google search would have revealed this information, which was also discussed on this forum in 2015. Why do people not use Google? <sigh>

Normally pitch is calculated as 90% of probe width considering 10% overlap.
If you want to increase overlap then you can calculate pitch as per that.

Paul,
It isn't clear in original post (to me at least) whether they are referring to width in active or passive direction. Maybe the point of clarification needed (also in Google) is that "elevation" (also called "W-passive") might be the term they see in their probe's information?
Regards

Hi Rick,

Maybe it was passive elevation they were looking for (which would actually be more elementary, because there's no calculation necessary, it's right in the catalog specs of any PAUT probe). I suspect since they used the term "calculate" and "single element", they literally meant the "e" value. I think in and of itself, it's not really that useful.

On a related note, ASME Sec V Art. 4 Mandatory Appendix V requires the phased array procedure include the gap dimension. This is ridiculous. I question why this is a requirement in the first place and since it's not a published, available parameter, why it hasn't been deleted yet. The code is updated every 2 years.

Cheers!
P
