What code or standard are you examining to and how is the accept/reject criteria established matched with understanding where the sound is actually going is a good place to start. API RP 2X has a good methodology to the examination of structural connections so I would study that. If you are new to this a well built mock up to practice on is essential.

Another excellent source of criteria and UT guidance is AWS D1.1 Both D1.1 and RP 2X are available online from http://store.ihs.com

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
