Experimental validation of the TRANGLE and related NDT codes for modelling the ultrasonic inspection of rough cracks
This paper describes recent work on the experimental validation of TRANGLE. Three specimens containing rough defects of different sizes were manufactured using a novel method which allowed each defect to be embedded into a block without any welds in the line of sight between the ultrasonic probes and the defects. Pulse-echo back-scatter measurements were then made and compared with both the ‘direct’ and ‘statistical’ predictions from TRANGLE.
