Description

The analytical treatment of the reflection of ultrasonic wave motion by a planar distribution of cracks is of interest for the nondestructive evaluation of imperfect diffusion bonds. Preliminary results for an experimental approach have been given by Hosten et al.1, for two bonded stainless steel cylinders. In practice, new high strength steel tubing has complicated the pinch welding process and placed emphasis on the integrity of the resulting weld, see Rehbein et al2, Thomas et al3. Two ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation techniques to find defects in the pinch weld and to determine weld strength have been discussed by Thomas et al.4.
