Experience in Ultrasonic Testing of Austenitic Welded Joints Using SAFT Technique and Phased Array Technique
Method. This paper presents the results of ultrasonic testing using acoustic tomography of large thickness austenitic steel welds. The longitudinal wave was used during the inspection.
Results. This paper describes the evaluation of flaws detection during conventional ultrasonic testing, and radiographic testing.
Conclusion. The results show that the ultrasonic testing using acoustic tomography can be applied for inspection of large thickness austenitic steel welds in order to increase the inspection reliability.
Keywords: manual ultrasonic testing, longitudinal wave, flaw detector using SAFT technique, flaw detector using phased array technique.
