Yes it is possible to perform UT shear wave inspection on painted surface, but you must carry out a number of other inspections prior to the shear wave inspection.
1. compression wave inspection of paint steel interface to ensure uniformity of the bond.
2. paint thickness inspection of coating any large variations in coating thickness could cause mode conversion variations and or attenuation losses.
3. check for transfer losses/gains when comparing your cal block to your inspection surface. I myself have experienced a 10 -12 db transfer gain from steel test block to painted surface.
Hope this helps.

sir
if we do shear wave through paint coating will that affect the refracted angle. because there are two interfaces
1) perspex paint interface 2) paint steel interface

Dear Arun
The refracted angle depends only the first and the last medium. If you calculate all interfaces you will have the same result. The paint change material attenuation (check transfer loss) and it depends on paint film thickness.
