protruding rivets

I would like to get info about commercially available systems for crack detection in multilayer aircraft structures with protruding rivets.

The folks of the Ultra Image IV group have a portable scanner system that can be equipped with a water-coupled adapter that permits travel over rivot heads and has been proven on aircraft lap splices. The system was compared with others and reported on by the FAA validation center. Info can be found at http://www.ndt.net/news/saic_up.htm

If you have any questions, contact Bob Grills at robert.h.grills@saic.com

Re: protruding rivets
If you should look for an ultrasonic inspection solution: Look for the "dripless bubbler" of the IOWA state university. The idea of the dripless with a 3 curtains of brushes to keep the water
is excellent. I don't know wether they are now in a postion to have this development commercialized. We ad EADS failed a year ago to buy only that bubbler, they wanted to sell us a complete system we did not need. But the idea is great.
Ref. to Rev. of Progr. in QNDE Vol 15.pp2045 (1996)
Responsible at the IOWA State Univ. is Thadd C. Patton & David K.Hsu
There are other solutions with 3 rotating ultrasound transducers and dry coupling on the market (one was developed by EADS Military in Manching Germany - maybe E.Grauvogl knows about it (Ernst.Grauvogl@m.dasa.de))

But in general you should think more about Eddy Current Testing as it is much more fitting that problem. Ask companies like Rohmann or Foerster, they have solutions with special probes.

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.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
