PHASED ARRAY TECHNIQUES IN NDT
March 26, 2018
Phased array techniques in non destructive testing is widely using nowadays due to its precision in material testing output results .It is widely using due to its simplicity of producing results as image and in the conventional mode.
What is Phased Array NDT?
It is a technique adapted in recent years mainly in eddy current testing and ultrasonic testing to simplify the needs of that particular technique.
Instead of using the source in a conventional technique the source is arranged in a phased manner which means a group of elements rather than a single element. This makes the system faster, more accurate, and can manipulate or calibrate according to the customer needs.
Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing.
It is commonly known as PAUT which is the advancement of conventional A-scan testing. In A-scan pulse-echo technique is used to produce echo to identify the defects and which requires detailed examination. In PAUT a two dimensional image, echo pattern, linear and sector views are created which gives more accurate interpretation of defects.
|SL NO||Conventional NDT||Advanced NDT|
|1||Interpretation difficult||Easy to interpret|
|2||Time consuming||Reduce time|
|3||Results may change||Accurate results|
|4||Manual reporting||Automatic results reports|
It is evident that as technology is developing in a blinking time the development of NDT techniques are also developing faster, which makes the profession much easier for technicians and engineers to meet the daily requirements of satisfactory work.
