Refracted Angles

Can someone tell me how to calculate the required refracted angle to obtain a 45 degree angle at the inside surface of a curved piece?

I believe you will find what you need in EN 583-2.
Rgds,

Re: Refracted Angles
Try this formula:

Sin of Angle 1 = Sin of Angle 2 * ID/OD

This calculates the required refracted angle (Sin Angle 1) at the inside diamter (ID) of the component based upon the ID/OD ratio.

Sin of Angle 2 is the desired angle, i.e., 45 degrees

ID is the inside diameter dimenison

OD is the Outside Diameter dimension

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
