Description

The inspection of welds in structural plates with ultrasonic contact transducers is an important application of ultrasonic NDE [1]. Models that completely describe transducer/flaw interactions can help to make reliable, quantitative measurements on the welds in question. Thus, recently we have begun development of an ultrasonic weld inspection simulator and will present the preliminary work for the simulator in this paper.
