Abstract

The work reported here is the development of a first prototype portable ultrasonic inspection instrument based on EMAT (electromagnetic acoustic transducer) technology. The goal was to demonstrate EMAT inspection capabilities for small-size flaws in metal parts and to build a self-contained NDE unit that had a high degree of signal processing on-board so that human interpretation was minimized. The unit also served as a test bed, so that a number of new concepts could be evaluated. This instrument is viewed as an important step in the development of future NDE equipment.
