"This book deals with fundamentals of ultrasonic testing, instruments used and application of methods. It serves as a reference handbook for engineers.

The ultrasonic method of non-destructive testing is currently the most widely used of the testing methods, disregarding the obvious ones of looking, feeling, measuring and weighing. These 'obvious' tests should, where possible, be conducted initially in all cases. It is a sad fact that much time and money have been wasted by conducting tests which reveal defects that could have been observed by the naked eye.

Why attend this course?

The other principal methods are: radiology, e. Of the commonly-used methods, only ultrasonic and radiological techniques can detect internal flaws with a very high degree of certainty although, in limited cases, detection may be possible in dielectric Materials with microwaves and in ferromagnetic Materials with magnetic flux leakage methods using highly sensitive Hall element detectors.

The use of the other methods is mainly restricted to detecting surface and sub-surface defects for which ultrasonic testing is often successful, but it should be borne in mind that these other methods, especially the magnetic particle and dye penetrant methods can be performed more speedily.

However, the latter techniques cannot provide reliable, if any, indications of crack depth which can be accurately measured with ultrasound, eddy currents and AC potential drop and field measurements.

For metals, the use of eddy currents is preferred for evaluating shallow surface cracks in metals and, although the AC measurements may be used for deeper crack detection and measurements, the ultrasonic technique has the advantage of accurately locating crack tips and thus providing indications of the angles of cracks.

The main advantages of ultrasonic testing are: testing can be carried out from a single surface; a high degree of penetration is possible in many commonly-used materials, which is in contrast with the lower degree of penetration encountered with radiological testing of metals; accuracy in locating and measuring defects; the ability to detect and size very small defects; and compatibility with automatic scanning devices and with micro- processors and computers.

The principal drawbacks are these: Operators must be properly trained, highly experienced and possess a high degree of reliability and integrity. With manual operation over a large surface area only a small part of a surface can be scanned at a time, although this can be improved upon, where feasible, with the use of transducer arrays.

A high degree of coupling between the transducer and the surface to be scanned is required, though much progress is now being made with the development of non-contact transducers.

This book is intended to provide an account of the theory and practice of everyday ultrasonic testing, although references are made to relevant latest developments, some of which are still in the research stage. It is aimed to cater for a wide range of reader extending from those embarking on associate degree or national certificate and BTEC courses to postgraduate researchers and, of course, qualified engineers and NDT personnel. To allow for this, the mathematics are kept at as low a level as possible in the main parts of the text and derivations of the relatively more complex equations are located in the Appendices.

Following normal practice, SI units are used in this book and readers who are not too familiar with them are referred to Appendix H. Adam Hilger, Bristol. Halmshaw, R.
