MEASUREMENT ON THE HEIGHT OF INTERNAL DEFECTS USING THE MODECONVERTED SURFACE WAVE AT THE DEFECT
The paper proposes a new method by which the cross sectional size or the diameter of internal defects such as cracks and blow holes can be measured accurately and easily. The method is based on using the time difference between a directly reflected shear wave and the echo resulting from the mode conversion between the shear wave and the surface wave at the defect in angle beam testing. The measuring principle, experimental results and measuring conditions or limitations of the method are discussed.
