Angle Beam Nondestructive Testing
Application ID: 78811
Angle beam ultrasonic units are used for nondestructive testing of solid objects, such as metal pipes. They are especially useful for detecting the flaws in and around welding areas. The operating principle lies in the generation of a refracted shear wave in the test sample that is reflected by cracks in the material.
The model uses the Elastic Waves, Time Explicit physics interfaces to model the wave propagation in linear elastic media. The model takes advantage of a geometry assembly and a nonconforming mesh.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
