Ultrasonic testing (UT) has been an accepted practice of inspection in industrial environments for decades. This book, Industrial Ultrasonic Inspection, is designed to meet and exceed ISO 9712 training requirements for Level 1 and Level 2 certification. The material presented in this book will provide readers with all the basic knowledge of the theory behind elastic wave propagation and its uses with the use of easy to read text and clear pictorial descriptions. Discussed UT concepts include:

General engineering, materials, and components theory

Theory of sound waves and their propagation

The general uses of ultrasonic waves
Methods of ultrasonic wave generation

Different ultrasonic inspection techniques

Ultrasonic flaw detectors, scanning systems, and probes

Calibration fundamentals

General scanning techniques

Flaw sizing techniques

Basic analysis for ultrasonic, phased array ultrasonic, and time of flight diffraction inspection techniques

Codes and standards

Principles of technical documentation and reporting

Level 1 and 2 laboratory section

It is my intention that this book is used for general training purposes. It is the ideal classroom textbook.
