ULTRASONIC INSPECTION OF RAILWAY TRACTION AND ROLLING STOCK AXLES

Axles of traction and rolling stock in use by British Rail are subjected to in-service ndt using three mandatory ultrasonic techniques; these are an end-wise scan, a near end-low angle scan and a high shear wave scan. The use of these three scans ensures that the whole axle is tested, not just the traditional cracking zones.
