Sound velocity measurements

Accuracy of sound velocity measurements( <=0.1% ?)

During the revision of the ISO 2400 Standard for the IIW block Nr. 1 we had to discuss
the problem of the accuracy at sound velocity measurements achievable with standard laboratory equipments.
This debate showed us that the difficulties with this problem tend to be underestimated. An absolute accuracy
of 0.1 % can be realized only with a certain amount care during the measurements.
As a reference I would like to indicate a contribution presented at the ASTM New Methods Seminar

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
