Swinging Beam Method of Scanning at Rail Electrocontact Weld Joints Testing

A. K. Gurvich, V. R. Satikov

Existing technology of rail electrocontact weld joints testing is labour-intensive and supposes that testing results fully depend on operator reliability. The transducer with a swinging beam travelling longitudinally, when used for that kind of welding, can make the scanning trajectory more than 20 times shorter and thereby can lower labour-intensity. The swinging beam method of scanning is implemented in modern flaw detectors with phased arrays.
