It would be wise to give more specification / data of the probe you refer to. That would make it easier to give you an advice.

it is in AUT the probe has crystal 15.6x8 .4MHz, normal, single element probe placed on wedge .wit water coupling agent .
and if it was angle probe with same specification which gives 45 degee what will be the coverage

Are you actually performing the inspection? This is worrisome.

You need to know this stuff before attempting inspections, likely on some client's very expensive assets with potentially massive safety implications. My assumption is that you're looking at a pressure vessel or piping?

If you get advice off the internet, then in some small way we've enabled your completely irresponsible behaviour to continue, possibly with dire consequences. No thanks.

(Now, I will completely walk back all of the above if you are a student and asked merely for interest sake. In that case, I'm sorry. I get tired of reading posts from supposed inspectors asking simple questions on how to fast track right to the final answer without having done the hard work first).

is it bothering you to help answering the question or you first must ask for my qualifications . you have knowledge and i respect that but you don't . what's your benefits to know my qualifications .i think i didn't ask about my qualifications to answer me like that way you have knowledge and you see that my question is not worth to be answered then its your point of view .i think this forum is made for knowledge gain not insulting people .thank you for your great answer.

The conventions to be respected before opening any technical discussion are few and I invite you to respect them correctly:
- Before creating a new discussion, make sure you have done some research both on ndt.net and on the web. It is very likely that someone has already discussed your own topic;
- Choose a title that best describes the main topic of the discussion. Titles like: ut probe, UT probe field, help, I'm stuck, I'm desperate and so on, they don't say anything about the content of the discussion, they are not useful to everyone, and above all they make them nervous!
- In the body of the discussion, to describe one's own experience on the topic, as much information as possible, express correctly and avoid SMS languages, abbreviations or any other strange terminology;
- Only at this point you can open your technical discussions and in an interesting way for everyone! Follow these simple steps and you will get positive answers.
In our forum, the 'pappa pronta' does not exist.
 Perhaps we should formalize it but understand it from the kind of questions that irritate or not have answered.
greetings

I feel petty that people left the original subject. In any case we should allow simple questions and post on the subject. Who does not like the question must not give any answer. We should take in account that people are here from all over the world from countries with different cultures and education systems. We should not discourage other people to post questions because that is not the mission of this forum.

J.B. asked Hefez for more details. Hafez posted the details and from this point we should continue this discussion on the subject.

There are many variables that will affect coverage, such as velocity, surface condition, couplant, temperature, grain size, gain, beam divergence, frequency. The easiest way to determine coverage is to plot the beam. This should give you the answer you seek.

thank you for your efforts ,and i appreciate it . but does the crystal of probe of 15.6 gives beam width with 15.6 or there is effective beam width which is less than this and how i know it .is there any calculations for it and sure with adding the divergence also in mind to conclude the coverage . supposed that the other factors like grain size temperature etc is fixed

appologies for my delay, take a look at the beam simulator and ultrasonics calculator here:
https://www.attar.com.au/training-aids-resources/
this will probably best answer your questions

Hafez,

To check the beam wide of AUT probes(I assume it is zonal discrimination technique for pipeline girth weld testing),you need to check scan data of calibration block.Each zone (usually for fusion face) should have enough beam overlaps to see the reflector of
adjusent zone at least -6 dB below the reference level.then you can easily calculate the beam wide base on reflector depths and beam overlaps of adjusent zones.
