Abstract

The demonstration of ultrasonic inspection reliability through Inspection Qualification is important for non-routine or safety critical tests. However, since Inspection Qualification is time consuming and costly, the provision of interactive software tools to aid the process offers substantial advantages. This paper describes such an interactive tool set to aid Inspection Qualification. Operating within a 3D CAD environment it consists of ray tracing, coverage map and defect/ray interaction tools. Initial ray amplitudes are also calculated and displayed, and estimation of favorable surface scanning positions determined.
