HAS ANY BODY TRIED TO TEST 5MM THICK STEEL WELDS BY PHASED ARRAY TECHNIQUE ?
IS IT POSSIBLE TO DETECT AMS "F" NOTCH (1.2MM EQUIVALENT DEFECT)
Phased Array at this thickness should not be a problem if the proper PA Probe is used.
I have used an Olypmus A00 designed probe of 10L16, (10 Mhz with 16 elements) on materials about .187 wall. And, that was in Titanium.
What materials are you inspecting? If carcbon Steel this should be very easy. SS may be a problem depending on grain size.
The notch depth you mentioned should not be a problem either. I have used Phased Array to detect EDM notches of .020 and less.
I know Olympus has techniques for notches smaller than 1/2 mm.
The best thing to do is try a few frequencies and probe types, 16 elements, 32 elements, etc.
thank you for your valuable comments.
my material is maraging steel M250.what is comment on M250 testing feasibility?WE are using titanium pure material also.
