Ultrasonic wave techniques, used increasingly in areas ranging from nondestructive inspection of materials to medical diagnosis, evolved from basic physical principles of wave mechanics. This profusely illustrated text brings together basic physics and modern applications. Joseph Rose explains the physical principles of wave propagation and then relates them to ultrasonic wave mechanics and the more recent guided wave techniques used to inspect and evaluate aircraft, power plants, and pipelines in chemical processing plants. He stresses mechanics, mathematics, and modeling throughout the book, establishing the framework for practical applications. The text is complemented by 344 illustrations, laboratory experiments, and 272 exercises.
This pocket-sized booklet is intended as a guide for UT personnel. Contents: 10 sections on subjects such as frequently used formulas, trigonometry, geometry, circumferential scanning and formula examples. (Also, 9 pages of detailed solutions are included.)
Student workbook for video/workbook training program. Technicians are introduced to the basics of radiographic testing, image quality indicators, the effects of energy levels on radiographs, film density, scatter radiation and diffraction. Other topics discussed: film manufacturing process, film structure, problems with fogging and artifacts, and viewing room organization and tools.
