Help! - c-scan test panel

I am currently doing a BEng in mechanical engineering and in my second year have decided to reasearch C-Scan and create a test panel. This reasearch will be continued into my third year therefore it is necessary that I do everything correctly now.

I have no experience at all of NDT or Ultrasonics.

Can any body enlighten me in simple terms what can test panels can do exactly and what is the difference to a-scan and c-scan?

Any other information on these topics would be much appreciated.

Regards
Mark

Re: Help! - c-scan test panel
Hi Mark,
Check out the Krautkramer website go to www.agfandt.com and then click on the Krautkramer Ultrasonics Systems section. The next page you see is all about Ultrasonic testing. At the bottom of the page is a booklet "Introduction to Basic Principles of Ultrasonic Non-destruction Testing". You can download it or they will send you a copy it is about 2.5MB. On the same page you can also get a copy of the Echo 39 magazine on pages 40-43 there are two articles on Cscan presentation and associated equipment. From pages 33-39 there are articles on various Ultrasonic flaw detectors with Ascan presentation.
Hope this sets you off in the right direction for your research.
Regards
Neil Burleigh

Re: Help! - c-scan test panel
In this month's issue you can find a video presentation of C-scan:
www.ndt.net/article/v08n11/passi2/passi2.htm

In the UT Encyclopedia you find description of:
A-scan: www.ndt.net/article/az/ut/asc.htm
C-scan: www.ndt.net/article/az/ut/csc.htm

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
