Title (EN) DEVICE FOR ULTRASONIC INSPECTION
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'INSPECTION PAR ULTRASONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This disclosure describes embodiments of a probe device that can replace the multiple probes now required to perform inspection of hollow targets. These embodiments can generate acoustic waves as both shear waves and compression waves. Moreover, configurations of the probe devices below can direct the acoustic waves across an angular range that accommodates for the position of potential anomalies in the hollow target.
(FR)La présente invention concerne, dans certains modes de réalisation, une sonde qui peut être utilisée à la place des multiples sondes désormais nécessaires pour inspecter des cibles creuses. Ces modes de réalisation peuvent générer des ondes acoustiques, à la fois sous la forme d'ondes de cisaillement et d'ondes de compression. De plus, des configurations des sondes selon l'invention peuvent diriger les ondes acoustiques sur une plage angulaire qui tient compte de la position d'anomalies potentielles dans la cible creuse.
