An advancedtechnique used for and detection in materials and structures. It is particularly effective for detecting and sizing cracks, discontinuities, and other defects in welded joints.
TOFD is based on the measurement of diffractedwaves that are produced when a sound wave encounters a or a in a material. The diffracted waves provide valuable information about the size, shape, and location of the defect. The diffracted signals are then received by sensors or transducers and analyzed.
TOFD typically involves the use of two ultrasonic probes positioned on opposite sides of the area being inspected. One probe emits an ultrasonic pulse, which propagates through the material, while the other probe receives the diffracted waves.
