Alternative Scanning Geometries for High-Speed Imaging with Linear Ultrasonic Arrays
A program entitled, “Development of an Ultrasonic Imaging System for the Inspection of Nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessels”, was initiated in 1976 under the sponsorship of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). One objective was the development of a high-speed system capable of inspecting two lineal feet of weld per minute according to ASME Section XI code requirements. A further objective was to provide high resolution images of significant flaws.
