Description

Inspection of welded plate and pipe assemblies with ultrasonic angle beam shear wave transducers is an important and common application of ultrasonic NDE. With the advent of the Thompson and Gray measurement model [1], many practical ultrasonic testing configurations such as angle beam inspections can now be analytically modeled. An important component of the measurement model for any UT testing configuration is the calculation of the incident wavefields radiated by the transmitting transducer, commonly known as the transducer beam model.
