Title: Lamb-wave inspection of welds in stainless steel tubes

Abstract

An ultrasonic Lamb-wave inspection technique was developed for use in inspecting the gas tungsten arc (GTA) welds in small diameter stainless steel tubes for lack of penetration. The particular technique was employed because of the ability to introduce the sound into the material a distance from the weld. A conventional shear-wave technique was tried without success. (auth)
