Abstract

Ultrasonic testing (UT) is essentially the transmission of high-frequency (0.25…20 MHz) sound waves (mechanical vibration and energy) into a material, in order to interact with the macro-structural constituents of the material which reflect and/or weaken it. Ultrasonic testing – as one of the most common nondestructive material testing (NDT) methods – thanks to its many variants, is able to operate in a mobilized and highly automated fashion; it can be performed on most material types; high accuracy and reproducibility can be achieved in error detection, and it is generally enough if only one side is accessible; changes in elevation can also be verified with this method besides distance measurement, and it is also suitable for determining certain material characteristics. The present article reviews the application technology characteristic of the procedural variants.
