Paper Title:
New Technology for NDT Weld Inspections – Phased Arrays and Diffraction Sizing
  Abstract

This article describes new techniques and technology for inspecting welds using automated ultrasonics. The prime new technology is phased arrays, while the new techniques are Time-of-Flight Diffraction and S-scan back diffraction. The relationship of phased arrays with North American codes is briefly given, along with an inspection result, comparing radiography, pulse-echo phased arrays and TOFD.
