Abstract

This paper reports the measurement procedure used for inspection of stainless steel cladding and sizing of flaws with inclined longitudinal transmitter-receiver probes. The special characteristics of these probes are discussed and a practical solution for calibration is presented. The results achieved in reactor pressure vessels inspections verify the applicability and accuracy of the technique described in this paper.
