Abstract: The leakage of the pipes is a major issue for the safety of industrial structures. However, in many cases, because of their geometrical complexity and inaccessibility, it is difficult to inspect them by the conventional NDE method. A long-range guided wave inspection, thus, is an option to inspect them. A torsional vibration mode, T(0,1) shows many advantages in a long-range guided wave examination of a pipe, such as no dispersion characteristic, no radial displacement and low attenuation. However, it is not easy to fabricate a transducer with an array of piezoelectric elements for generation of torsional vibration mode and even expensive. Recently a magnetostrictive metal strip sensor was used for a generation of the torsional vibration modes in a pipe and this technique has shown several advantages for practical applications. This study investigated the applicability of a long-rang guided ultrasonic method to the detection of artificial notches even in the presence of various foreign objects.

Abstract: The leakage of a pipe in nuclear power plants is a significant concern from the point of view of nuclear safety. Because of the geometrical complexity of a pipe and an inaccessibility due to a high radiation, it is difficult to inspect it by the conventional ultrasonic methods. The guided ultrasonic method can be useful for the inspection of a pipe in those harsh environments. Based on the analysis of the dispersion curves for a pipe, a torsional vibration mode, T(0,1) was selected for the detection of cracks. The T(0,1) mode has many advantages, such as a higher sensitivity for a crack from the viewpoint of its non-dispersion characteristics and its wave structure. The torsional mode can be generated by using either an array of electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMATs) technique or a magnetostrictive sensor technique. The detectability of the cracks was estimated through a series of experiments with artificial notches on a pipe.

Abstract: In the present study, the synthetic signals from the combo tube are simulated by using commercial electromagnetic numerical analysis software which has been developed based on a volume integral method. A comparison of the simulated signals to the experiments is made for the verification of accuracy, and then evaluation of five deliberated single circumferential indication signals is performed to explore a possibility of using a numerical simulation as a practical calibration tool. The good agreement between the evaluation results for two cases (calibration done by experiments and calibration made by simulation) demonstrates such a high possibility.

Abstract: In this paper, the dispersion curves of a bent cylindrical pipe are obtained by using the 3-dimensional finite element modeling and 2-dimenstional Fourier transform. The transient responses of the bent pipe are calculated by using a general-purpose finite element program, and the displacements are extracted at a series of sequential points as a function of spatial position and time, u(x,t). Then 2-dimentional FFT of u (x,t) offers U (k,ω), the relation between wave number and angular frequency so that the phase velocity and group velocity can be calculated. In addition, verification of the result is made by the mode identification using wavelet transform. The modes invoked by both methods agree very well.
