root assessment of 4mm wall pipe

Is it possible to assess the root of 4mm wall thick pipe with a 10mm wide weld reinforcement using conventional a-scan equipment

Re: root assessment of 4mm wall pipe
Yes, one consdieration would be to use a time of flight focused shearwave probe at about 70 or maybe 75 degrees.

You did not state the maetrial type. If an austenitic material, then focused L wave using TOF may be necessary.

Calibration would be a block of similar material with side drilled holes at 1 mm depth.

What is the damage mechanism you are looking for???

Cracks, corrosion???

Sincerely,

J. Mark Davis
