Ultrasonic phased array (PA) is an advanced nondestructive testing (NDT) technique that has been used in industrial sectors for decades. Though it has been innovated, developed, and proven for a wide range of applications, the potential of phased array for the inspection of certain materials has yet to be fully exploited. Inspecting dissimilar welds, for example, is such a complex application that engineering an advanced phased array inspection can be time consuming. Not to mention the level of skill that i
