Ultrasonic Testing of Steel with Herzog

By |2022-05-06T09:32:00+01:00May 6th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorised|Tags: |

Fatigue defects are a common cause of failure of steel components that resist dynamic loads. For this reason, fitness for service assessments of such components nearly always include specific inspections that are designed to detect the presence of fatigue defects. Unfortunately, detecting the defects can be quite difficult. This is primarily because fatigue cracks are usually [...]

Guided Wave Testing: Now Finding a Needle in a Haystack

By |2022-05-03T22:58:00+01:00May 3rd, 2022|Categories: Uncategorised|Tags: |

Guided wave testing, or GWT, uses low-frequency ultrasound operating between 20-150kHz compared to the MHz frequency range for conventional ultrasonics used for thickness checks. This allows the ultrasound to be broadcast away from the tool and axially along the pipe in GWT. When this broadcast ultrasound encounters a change in cross-section, the change in acoustic impedance [...]
