if you want to use TOFD method to measure cracks depth, the best refracted anle(for the logitudinal wave)must be included between 45° and 60°

Re: crack depth measureing by tip diffraction method
Dear Kamran,

There are several considerations for the Tip Diffraction Methods:

Some people believe that a 52 degree is the best. I like the 45 degree due to the corner trap affect.

Are you using Shear waves or L waves?

What materials are you inspecting, carbon stainless, etc?

What is the thickness of the material? You will have to consider damping factors for thin materials.

Please review the Advanced Flaw Sizing Handbook in the publications section of ndt.net.

Sincerely,

Mark Davis
