Description

Ultrasonic standards for artillery shells are made by machining grooves into inert projectile bodies. Current standards are difficult to design and build and do not realisticly simulate manufacturing defects. This poster paper will discuss the design process and use of ultrasonic standards and will describe some of their current limitations.

Strong Need for Improved Ultrasonic Standards for Inspection of Artillery Shell Metal Bodies

La Jolla, CA

Ultrasonic standards for artillery shells are made by machining grooves into inert projectile bodies. Current standards are difficult to design and build and do not realisticly simulate manufacturing defects. This poster paper will discuss the design process and use of ultrasonic standards and will describe some of their current limitations.
