Help! - c-scan test panel

I am currently doing a BEng in mechanical engineering and in my second year have decided to reasearch C-Scan and create a test panel. This reasearch will be continued into my third year therefore it is necessary that I do everything correctly now.

I have no experience at all of NDT or Ultrasonics.

Can any body enlighten me in simple terms what can test panels can do exactly and what is the difference to a-scan and c-scan?

Any other information on these topics would be much appreciated.

Regards
Mark

Re: Help! - c-scan test panel
Hi Mark,
Check out the Krautkramer website go to www.agfandt.com and then click on the Krautkramer Ultrasonics Systems section. The next page you see is all about Ultrasonic testing. At the bottom of the page is a booklet "Introduction to Basic Principles of Ultrasonic Non-destruction Testing". You can download it or they will send you a copy it is about 2.5MB. On the same page you can also get a copy of the Echo 39 magazine on pages 40-43 there are two articles on Cscan presentation and associated equipment. From pages 33-39 there are articles on various Ultrasonic flaw detectors with Ascan presentation.
Hope this sets you off in the right direction for your research.
Regards
Neil Burleigh

Re: Help! - c-scan test panel
In this month's issue you can find a video presentation of C-scan:
www.ndt.net/article/v08n11/passi2/passi2.htm

In the UT Encyclopedia you find description of:
A-scan: www.ndt.net/article/az/ut/asc.htm
C-scan: www.ndt.net/article/az/ut/csc.htm

Mark,
You can find interesting informations about Ultrasonic testing (and other testing methods...) at

http://www.ndt-ed.org/


also you can find informations about C-Scan systems at :

http://www.aims.nl/
http://www.scanmaster-irt.com/
http://www.gepower.com/businesses/ge_panametrics/en/index.htm
http://www.karldeutsch.de/
http://www.rd-tech.com/
http://www.agfandt.com/

and a page about the history of C-Scan...(the first C-Scan in the world ;) )

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
