UT testing

I'm looking for UT methods testing thin aluminum layer (1mm) with corrosion defects from the bottom. This is typical in multilayer structure. Can You suggest me some methods (including some propositions parameters configurations). I'm working with automated scannig system.

You might be better off working with an eddy current approach. I used this method on thin-skinned aluminum-to-wood shelters with corrosion on the bonded interface.

I agree with Mr. Rodgers. With properly designed probes Eddy Current can be used to assess even the layers below the first layer. As well, ECT is easily automated.



    
 
 

Product Spotlight

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
