Abstract: This paper capitalizes on recent advances in the area of non-contact ultrasonic guided wave techniques. The present technique provides a decent method for nondestructive testing of defect thinning simulating a hidden corrosion or FAC(Flow Accelerated Corrosion) in a thin aluminum plate. The proposed approach is based on using EMAT(Electro-magnetic Acoustic Transducer) to generate guided waves and detect the wall thinning without any coupling. Interesting features in the dispersive behavior of selected guided modes are used for the detection of plate thinning. It is shown that mode cut-off measurement allows us to monitor a defect thinning level while a group velocity change can be used to quantify the thinning depth.

Abstract: A preliminary study of the behavior of ultrasonic guided wave mode in a pipe using a comb transducer for maintenance inspection of power plant facilities has been verified experimentally. Guided wave mode identification is carried out in a pipe using time-frequency analysis methods such as wavelet transform (WT) and short time Fourier transform (STFT), compared with theoretically calculated group velocity dispersion curves for longitudinal and flexural mode. The results are in good agreement with analytical predictions and show the effectiveness of using the time-frequency analysis method to identify the individual guided wave modes. And, It was found out that longitudinal mode (0, 1) is affected by mode conversion less than the other modes. Therefore, L (0, 1) is selected as a optimal mode for evaluating location of the surface defect in a pipe.

Abstract: Conventional non-destructive techniques for inspection of weld in pipelines require significant test time and high cost. In order to overcome these drawbacks in conventional NDT techniques, various techniques using ultrasonic guided waves have been developed and applied to the pipeline inspection. Recently, a fast calculation technique for guided wave propagation using a semi-analytical finite element method (SAFEM), PIPE WAVE ver.1.0, has been developed by T. Takahiro et al [1]. In this paper, the calculation of torsional mode propagation in a pipe using PIPE WAVE ver. 1.0 is introduced as a preliminary study and the application of the torsional mode of ultrasonic guided waves to long range pipe inspection is presented.. The characteristics and setup of a long range guided wave inspection system and experimental results in pipes of various diameters are introduced. The experimental results in mock-up pipes with cluster type detects show that the limit of detectable wall thickness reduction with this guided wave system is 2~3% in the pipe cross section area and the wall thickness reduction of 5% in cross section area can be detected when actual detection level is used. Therefore, the applicability of the ultrasonic guided wave technique to long range pipeline inspection for wall thickness reduction is verified.

Abstract: The magnetic coercivity of martensitic 12Cr steel was measured in order to evaluate its degree of isothermal aging. As the aging time increased, the lath width increased and the dislocations were recovered. Aging resulted in the coarsening of the as-tempered carbides (M23C6 and MX) followed by additional precipitation of Fe2W. The magnetic coercivity rapidly decreased during the initial aging period of about 1,000 hours and then decreased slightly thereafter. The decrease in the coercivity with increasing aging time was related to the decrease in the number of pinning sites, those associated with the dislocations, fine precipitates and coarsening of the martensite lath/subgrain.

Abstract: In this paper, study on evaluation of thickness reduction in a thin plate with guided waves is presented. Ultrasonic guided wave techniques have been widely studied and successfully applied to various non-destructive tests with the advantage of long range inspection. In addition to application of guided waves to NDT, non-contact methods for ultrasonic wave generation and detection have become very useful and well combined with guided wave techniques due to their capability of ultrasonic wave generation and reception in surface of high temperature or on rough surface. An advanced non-contact technique for detection of thickness reduction simulating hidden corrosion in thin plates using guided waves is proposed. The proposed approach uses EMAT(Electro-Magnetic Acoustic Transducer) for the non-contact generation and detection of guided waves in aluminum plates. Interesting features of the dispersive behavior in selected wave modes are used to detect plate thinning. The experimental results show that the mode cutoff measurements provide a qualitative measurement of thinning detects and change in the mode group velocity can be used as quantitative parameter of thinning depth measurement.

Abstract: It's not easy to detect the defects in fillet weldment which is widely used in various building structures and power plants just with nondestructive inspection due to its complex geometrical shape and difficult access. But it's easy to detect the cracks on the surface or just below the surface of fillet weldment heel part if surface SH-wave, among ultrasonic wave modes, is applied. The traditional ultrasound inspection using surface SH-wave is usually a contact method using piezoelectric transducer, so it's not suitable for a field application because the reliability of inspection varies depending on field environments such as couplant, contact pressure and pre-process, etc. Therefore, the necessity for non-contact ultrasound inspection is increasing. This study proposes non-contact ultrasound inspection method using EMAT (electro-magnetic acoustic transducer), and presented non-contact ultrasound inspection method for fillet weldment through experimental verification.

Abstract: In the present work, the strain induced martensite in 316L stainless steel was quantitatively characterized by X-ray diffraction, the measurement of the magnetic coercivity and the AE technique during the monotonic tensile deformation of plate specimens. Plate specimens subjected to different heat treatments (i.e. having different initial microstructures) were tensile-deformed and the AE counts obtained during tensile deformation were correlated with the microstructural development. The AE count was observed to increase with increasing amount of strain induced martensite phase, as determined by X-ray diffraction analysis. The potential of the AE technique and the measurement of the magnetic coercivity to be used for the evaluation of the tensile deformation was discussed in relation to the existence of strain-induced martensite.

Abstract: We attempted to estimate the residual stress which evolved during the shot peening of Al 7075 alloy using leaky surface acoustic wave (LSAW). Shot peening was conducted to produce a variation in the compressive residual stress with the depth from the surface at a shot velocity of 30m/s. The LSAW velocity was measured using a scanning acoustic microscopy (SAM). The Vickers hardness profile obtained inwards from the surface showed significant work hardening of the near surface layer with a thickness of about 0.3mm. The variation in the LSAW velocity through the shot peened surface layer was in good agreement with the distribution of the residual stress measured by X-ray diffraction.
