Radial Surface Waves

Does anyone have some references about using radial surface waves
from short focused transducers to detect surface and near surface
defects and material property variations?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Mr. Sebastian Gripp of our organisation has realized an industrial solution for surface testing of contoured turbine discs applying a specific rayleigh wave probe. The corresponding paper has been presented at the WCNDT in Rome last fall.

Re: Radial Surface Waves
Mr Gripp's paper is available at:
Surface Crack Detection Using Rayleigh Waves - in immersion: A Novel Application of a Known Principle
http://www.ndt.net/article/wcndt00/papers/idn031/idn031.htm

Also I would like to take the opportunity to introduce a problem of the email address used in the forum message.
Albrecht Maurer used in his message the email address "albrecht_maurer@nukem.de",
but his Member Profile is registers with the email address "Nutronik@Nukem.de".
The system can set Profile and Exhibitors links only according to the registered Forum Profiles.

Mr. Maurer's Profile: http://www.ndt.net/wshop/profile/profiles/123.htm
NUKEM Nutronik GmbH: http://www.ndt.net/exhibit/stand/15_ky.htm

That means you shall use for forum messages always the email address of the profile.

Best regards
Rolf Diederichs

.I hope this will clarify the points. For past 3 years we are working on developing sensors and system for surface and subsurface characterization of materials in terms of surface velocities and amplitude information and we have a success. We have full facility at University which one can take advantage. The University is McMaster in Hamilton, Ontario or at Fallon Ultrasonics Inc in Hamilton.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
