During the studies the weld axis (y-axis) was aligned parallel to the plane of the polarizer.
The cuts were made perpendicularly to the weld axis to reveal the weld profiles of each sample.
The sound was distributed through the material in the angle range from 45[degrees] to 70[degrees] in dependence on probe position from the weld axis. The sensitivity of this method was calibrated on reference standard with the hole of 1.5 mm in diameter and 21 mm in depth for the echo size with the maximum of 80% screen appearance (FSH).
