THE FEASIBILITY OF X-RAY INSPECTION OF WELDS USING BACK SCATTERED RADIATION

Theoretical and experimental work was conducted to develop a radiographic flaw detection technique using source and film located on the same side of the plate. In view of a serious limitation on the depth at which discontinuities in steel can be detected (0.20 in.) and long exposure time (20 min. at 250 kv), the method is considered to be unsatisfactory as a critical inspection tool.
