201026H – UT Shear Wave L1
Ultrasonic testing involves the use of high frequency sound waves to determine the condition of a component. These high frequency sound waves, ultrasound, travel along very distinct paths and reflect back to the transducer allowing the technician to “see” inside the part being tested.
Shear wave testing projects a sound beam in at a refracted angle allowing for the detection of welding or material flaws.
Of paramount importance in ultrasonic testing is the operator’s ability to know where the sound is and to interpret the returned signal that would often indicate a flaw in the material or reduced thickness. Our course is designed to ensure that you can perform this crucial function.
