a. B-scans
b. through testing
c. resonance thickness testing
d. flaw detection

Q2 Touching the reflection point of a normally incident transverse wave with an oily finger will
a. reduce signal by about 6dB
b. increase the signal by about 2dB
c. reduce the signal by about 2dB
d. have no effect on the signal

Q3 The result of increasing the temp from 10deg C to 30 deg C is
a. decrease the refracted angle
b. decrease the acoustic velocity
c. increase sensitivity
d. all of the above

Q4 The unit of sound (or electrical energy) gain or attenuation , dB is
a. a ratio of voltages or intencities
b. one tenth of a bell
c. both a and b

Q5 Non contact ultrasonic coupling , ie coupling across an air gap has its advantage in
a. testing at elevated temperatures is possible
b. avoiding trasducer wear on rough surfaces
c. avoiding fluid contamination of test piece
d. all of the above

Q6 An advantage of using ut surface waves over other wave modes is
a. the ease of focusing the beam
b. test piece contours are followed without loss of due to direction changes
c. good sensitivity to subsurface defects
d. none of the above

Q7 In snells law there will be no first criticle angle if the

Product Spotlight

Compact NDT inspection-heads for measurements with active thermography

The compact inspection head is suitable for thermographic ndt tasks. The uncooled infrared camera
is specially developed for NDI-tasks and offers a thermal sensitivity until now known only from thermal imagers with cooled detector. All required components and functions are integrated into the inspection-head. You will only need an ethernet cable to connect the sensor with the evaluation system.

Ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of concrete structures А1040 MIRA

Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal structure of objects from conc
rete, reinforced concrete, different stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions, holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects.


TSC Amigo2 - ACFM technology has developed a solid reputation for accurately detecting and sizing
surface-breaking cracks through paint and coatings. As the industry demands increased performance in speed, signal quality, and portability, it’s time for an evolution. It’s time for Amigo2.


TraiNDE UT is a virtual tool associated with a signal database which simulates real inspection con
ditions for numerous applications (Type A/V1 block, DAC block, welds and plates).
