    Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

    Ultrasonic testing (UT)

    In ultrasonic testing, an ultrasound transducer connected to a diagnostic machine is passed over the object being inspected. The sound waves propagate through the sample, and reflect at interfaces. The reflected waves are monitored using a detector above the sample. The thickness of the sample, and the depth and type of flaw can be ascertained using this method. The method can be applied to most materials if sound transmission is good. Ultrasonic testing is often performed on steel and other metals and alloys, though it can also be used on concrete, wood and composites, albeit with less resolution. It is used in many industries including steel and aluminium construction, metallurgy, manufacturing, aerospace, automotive and other transportation sectors Quick high sensitive results are obtained.
