Post Conference Seminars

Separate Fee Required

Saturday May 20
New Advances in Ultrasonic Inspection Technologies

8:00 am – 12:00 pm
Guided Wave Testing and Monitoring Over Long and Short Ranges
David Alleyne, Guided Ultrasonics Ltd.

The latest innovation is the QSR (Quantitative Short Range) testing system, which quantitatively measures the maximum depth as the tool travels along the pipe axially. Therefore the profile of corrosion is automatically measured and displayed. This capability allows the profile of corrosion under supports to be scanned and mapped. The device is capable of measuring the depth of corrosion up to half of the pipe wall thickness.  The technology is based on the use of multiple circumferential guided waves. In order to achieve high portability, the QSR scanner generates and receives guided wave by means of EMAT transducers which do not require any physical contact with the object under test.

The course will cover

  • how guided waves are used
  • dispersion curves and mode shapes and their sensitivity to different defects
  • description of excitation and reception of the different modes that are used in both long range and short range testing corrosion under pipe supports (CUPS) will be used to demonstrate practical applicability of the theory and the science of these propagating stress waves

1:00 – 5:00 pm
Understanding the Full Matrix Capture-Total Focusing Ultrasonic Method (FMC-TFM)
John Nyholt, San Jacinto College

This 4-hour course will overview the fundamentals of the emerging ultrasonic FMC-TFM technology, it’s advantages and limitations, and its potential impact on the future of industrial ultrasonic imaging inspection. A comparison of PAUT to conventional ultrasonic testing will be explained and demonstrated for both corrosion and weld inspection applications for damage mechanisms outlined in API 571 as well as the applications used for API risk based inspection and fitness for service codes.

The course will include advanced ultrasonic theory instruction followed by demonstrations on real world damage samples and optional hands on experience.
