Description

An ultrasonic guided wave system for pipe inspection is proposed. Using guided wave experience to date on a variety of different tubing problems, feasibility experiments have already been conducted on piping under insulation in both a laboratory and chemical processing facility field environment. Several guided wave techniques are introduced, one using a broad banded variable angle beam transducer on a curved shoe, and one on a newly developed pipe comb system. Discussion on both axisymmetric and non-axisymmetric wave propagation is presented.
