Weld defect recognition algorithm

Does anybody have experience or reference for weld defect recognition algorithm. I would like to recognize a crack, a slag, a lack-of-fusion,... in dataes coming from a raster scan.

Dear Andre Lamarre

I have heard that the General Electric Nuclear Energy (GENE)group develop such an algorithm to used in conjunction with their GERIS automated ultrasonic system used in the Nuclear industry. The group that developed this was located in San Jose, California, USA but recently moved to Charolette, North Carolina, USA.

Regards,
Richard D. Roberts

I would like to draw your attention to small booklet, which had been issued 1987 by the IIW Subcommission Vc (this is a group of UT experts within the International Institute of welding).The title is:
"The Evaluation of Ultrasonic Signals"
Guidance and recommendations on the evaluation of ultrasonic signals in manual weld examination and on defect acceptance/rejection criteria.
ISBN 0 85300206 1
Published on behalf of the International Institute of Welding by The Welding Institute, Abington Hall, Cambridge, UK

Even if this document refers mainly to a manual scanning, the basic problems with the classification and quantitative evaluation are quite well ascertained within this document. There are some more recent activities on the way for the Evaluation of the results from automatic scannings covering e.g. the problem of a judgement more strongly based on the images and patterns delivered by most of the automatic ultrasonic inspection approaches and equipments.
There is in Germany a working group for the automatic ultrasonic inspection which is a group of the german Society for NDT (DGZfP) chaired by Mr, F. Barbian from Pipetronics. Actually they are preparing a document which will be available during the next year. Similar activities are presumably going on in France (You should ask Mr. Chauveau from the Institut de Soudure, Metz).

In the new European Standard EN 1713 (Aug. 98)
you will find a flow chart to classify flaws in steel welds by manual testing:
Nondestructive examination of welds -
Ultrasonic examination -
Characterization of indications in welds.

Using echo amplitude, reflectivity with two different beam angles, pulse shape, and dynamic behaviour of the echo(oes).
Classyfying planar defects, lack of fusion, inclusions, cracks.

kind regards
