That incident prompted the FAA to propose last year that similar fan blades undergo ultrasonic inspections
and be replaced if they failed.
For embedded flaws, ultrasonic inspection
can be used (ASTM A609).
TEHRAN (FNA)- The latest ultrasonic inspections
detected a substantial number of new micro cracks in nuclear reactors at the Tihange and Doel power plants in Belgium since the last study conducted three years ago, Belgian and German media report.
All of the structures will be fabricated in Orbital ATK's Large Structures Center of Excellence (COE) in Iuka, Mississippi, employing advanced fiber placement and hand lay-up processes, automated machining and ultrasonic inspection
Stuart Lawson is managing director of Aberdeenbased AISUS Offshore, which specialises in visual and ultrasonic inspection
of caissons, risers and offshore tubulars.
Also key to the technology is a real-time flaw detection technology to the full length of the seam using phased array ultrasonic inspection
. The new HFW steel pipes are produced for high-grade linepipe by optimizing the chemical composition and rolling conditions of the steel coil used as starting material, and optimizing the welding conditions and the seam heat treatment conditions during electric-resistance welding.
technologies require only a single technician with minimal equipment, and results are displayed in microseconds, readily available for interpretation.
UltraVision 3.6R4 is the latest in Zetec's suite of ultrasonic Inspection
Despite rapid progress in both visual and ultrasonic inspection
technologies in the past few years, human beings remain an essential part of the inspection process.
The procedure, entitled "Part 4 a Ultrasonic Inspection
of BMS 8-276 Solid Laminate Fuselage Structures for Damage (Ultrasonic Camera)," helps NDT inspectors capture real-time, high-resolution ultrasound images of composite structures.

PVC pipe was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the practical application of the pulse-echo ultrasonic inspection
on the curved surface to measure the thickness of adhesive substance stuck on the inner wall of the pipe.
