【AE003】Selected Highlights from 50 years of NDE Evolution
Donald O. Thompson
Scientific Advisor to the Director, Institute for Physical Research and Technology
Founding Director, Center for NDE
Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Aerospace Engineering
Abstract: NDE for flaw detection/characterization has undergone an evolutionary change over the past 50 years. In the U.S. it has moved from a strategy of zero defects to a damage tolerant strategy in which it is assumed that the part will contain defects but that they will be less than a critical size as defined by material properties and expected stress levels encountered in service. It has also been realized that considerable cost benefits can be obtained by moving NDE considerations for a part to the front of the manufacturing process and incorporating NDE into design and process control. In this talk, selected events from the past 50 years that have been influential in promoting this paradigm shift will be noted, and highlights of research advances that resulted from them and that form a part of the new paradigm will be discussed. These advances have resulted in new computational tools (simulations of the NDE process) for UT, X-ray, and EC as well as new instrumentation particularly suited to quantitative process control and field measurements. Applications of both will be discussed. Finally, a few words on a world-wide collaboration in NDE, the World Federation of NDE Centers, will be discussed.

(Zhejiang provincial Special Equipment Inspection and Research Institute, Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou, 310020)
Abstract: Acoustic emission (AE) technique has been widely applied to pressure vessel and piping inspection. Sound source location analysis plays an important role in the whole AE inspection and evaluation process, how to improve the location precision to an extent is the research focus all over the world. For AE sound source location of pressure vessel and piping, the arrival-time difference location method is mainly used, i.e. compute arrival-time difference which sound source signals arrive at different sensors to determine the sound source location. If an active sound source is on the internal surface or in the wall not on the external surface of thick-wall pressure vessels, the location error obviously exists because of the wall thickness influence. In this paper the sound source error for thick-wall pressure vessels is deduced in detail, the sound source location error formulas are founded and the change law of location error with the wall thickness is analyzed and discussed too. The results indicate that the location errors in the experiment are both in good agreement with those in theory with a maximum relative error of 7.12%. Furthermore, when the thickness is less than 600mm, it is proposed that about 200 mm radius area around the source location should be rechecked by normal nondestructive testing methods to determine the actual source location by AE inspection.

There is no need for removal of protection/insulation layers. The inspection is done from pipe exterior. The technique is sensitive to local and general wall loss. Case study data will be presented and discussed in the paper.

Abstract: Thermosonic imaging is a new kind method of NDE/T technology for detecting surface and subsurface cracks and defects. In the technology, the cracks (defects) will be heating under intensive ultrasonic pulses excitations due to both sides of the cracks have different vibration amplitudes and phases. In the experimental studies of the technology, it has been found that the cracks display obviously different temperatures (heat) while the ultrasonic excitation sources are located at different positions. On the other hand, based on the ultrasonic vibrations in plates a theoretical model is presented to calculate the vibrations of both sides of the cracks, and the amplitude and phase differences between the vibrations of both sides of the cracks are obtained, in which the harmonic components are considered. The results show that the differences are dependent on the relative directions and distances between the ultrasonic sources and the cracks. The amplitude and phase differences of both sides of the cracks determine the temperatures (heats) around the cracks. Finally, the results are analyzed and discussed, which show that the theoretical calculations are in agreement with that of the experimental measurements.

Abstract: Conventional ultrasonic NDT method is quite incompetence for the surface fatigue crack testing of in service rotary shaft. Considering the formation mechanism of the surface fatigue crack in rotary shaft and the propagation character of creeping wave in media, creeping wave is employed to the surface fatigue crack detection of in service rotary shaft. An experiment was carried out on a certain type of stepped rotary shaft for the testing of surface fatigue cracks. The result reveals that, this method is simple and efficient for the fatigue crack testing of in service rotary shaft, and it can be applied for the routine testing of in service rotary shaft.

Abstract: Edge is the most basic features of image. In the field of industrial detection, accuracy edge detection for infrared image can effective discovery the shape and the size of defects. In this paper, a weighted average to determine filter first, second Images median filtering, mean filtering and weighted mean filtering, and then detect the infrared image edge separately on Pre-filtering, after median filtering, mean filtering and weighted mean filtering by Canny and LoG operator. Results show that edge detection, edge detection for after weighted mean filtering by LoG operator can keep more edge information, fewer false edge and more accurate test results relatively.

Abstract: In order to enhance sizing capability for a deep crack, a modified multiple exciting coil ECT inspection scheme is proposed and studied in this paper. The key idea is that, not only the amplitude, but also the phase of the excitation current in the two pairs (four) of exciting coils are adjusted to suppress the eddy currents on the surface of the inspection target. The numerical results reveal that the modified way gives some improvement of sizing capability for deep cracks.
