Diffraction effects

Dear colleagues

I'm trying to measure small flat-bottom holes (diameters from 0.5 to 10 mm) in a steel specimen by scanning them with a longitudinal immersion 10 MHz focussed probe.

My question are:

1. How diffraction effects can alter the reflection of the ultrasonic beam when part of it hits the edge of the hole?

2. Can I take into account these effects in order to "correct" the size which comes from the C-scan results?

3. Is there any literature reference (please not too theoretical if possible) on this topic?

Thanks in advance

Massimiliano Pau

P.S. thanks to Joe Buckley for his precious advice about the noise with electromagnetic fields generated by an inverter. It worked!

>Dear, Mr Pau.
I have experience of a ultrasonic control thin-walled (0,5-5mm) of welded
seams on frequencies 10-15MHz by a focusing transducer (immersion control).
A diameter of a focal spot 0,5mm. C-scan the image of an imperfection (flaw)
is a convolution of two functions: functions of reflection of an
imperfection (flaw) (including diffractional effects) and cut of a focal
spot. The dependence of sort is obtained: "conditional square - diameter of
an imperfection (flaw)".

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).

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
