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

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
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).
