Angle Beam Nondestructive Testing

Application ID: 78811


Angle beam ultrasonic units are used for nondestructive testing of solid objects, such as metal pipes. They are especially useful for detecting the flaws in and around welding areas. The operating principle lies in the generation of a refracted shear wave in the test sample that is reflected by cracks in the material.

The model uses the Elastic Waves, Time Explicit physics interfaces to model the wave propagation in linear elastic media. The model takes advantage of a geometry assembly and a nonconforming mesh.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
