Description

Nondestructive detection of flaws in jet engine components is an essential part of assessing the integrity of the parts, and optimal design of experimental configurations is essential for high reliability detection. Due to the high cost of experimental evaluation, it would be highly desirable to accomplish this through the use of computer simulation of the detection/measurement process. This paper presents a first generation simulation model for the problem of ultrasonic detection of flaws in turbine rotor components. Included is the derivation of the model, the results of limited experimental validation of the software, and an example of its use to model the detection of penny shaped cracks in the plate-like geometry of a turbine rotor component web region.
