Abstract
Unlike other industrial branches, nuclear industry - when performing UT- is not only asking for a reliable detection, but also for an exact sizing of material defects. Under these objectives ultrasonic imaging plays an important role in practical testing of nuclear components in the data evaluation process as well as for documentation of the inspection results. 2D and 3D sound-field steering by means of phased array technology offers great opportunities for spatially correct visualization of ultrasonic indications. Thus, by the use of modern phased array inspection systems, UT of objects with complex geometries can be performed more effectively and flexibly. Tom...
