INFLUENCE OF ATTENUATION UPON THE WELD INTERROGATION DISTANCE-AMPLITUDE CURVE

The influence of the relative attenuation of the base material and weldment upon the distance-amplitude curve (DAC) used to establish quantitative information for indications noted during an ultrasonic angle beam weld interrogation is examined. The resulting implications to flaw detection are explored and a suitable corrective method is presented.
