Ultrasonic Phased Arrays for Weld Testing

In this paper, the ability of phased arrays to detect weld discontinuities was tested on American Petroleum Institute (API) Qualification of Ultrasonic Examiners (QUTE) test specimens. These specimens include embedded discontinuities in plate and pipe samples. Tests were conducted using two phased array systems. The results of the tests showed that both phased array systems easily detected all the discontinuities in the test plates
