Ultrasonics can be applied to many product types: plate and pipe, welds, forgings, castings, machined parts – in many different shapes and sizes: cylinders, spheres, nozzles – and made of many different materials: ferritic steel, stainless steel, aluminium, composites, and others. In introducing the principles of conventional ultrasonic NDT, the authors assume that the readers know little about ultrasonics. Section 2 gives the principles and sets the scene for understanding how and why constraints are imposed. Section 3 deals with welds on the assumption that everything is favourable to the inspection. It gives the capabilities, all other things being equal. The NDT specialist might start reading here. In Section 4 we look at the additional limitations imposed by bad access, poor surface finish and unfavourable component geometry. We also consider the implications of coarse grain structures, high levels of inclusions or the occurrence of complex defects. Section 5 rounds off by mentioning special features of automated inspections in improving or limiting ultrasonic NDT.
