An advanced ultrasonic training course designed for Level II, Level III and NDE management and Supervisory personnel. This class is also ideal for individuals planning to take the API QUTE, API QUPA or other similar Performance Demonstration examinations testing your detection and characterization skills.
This course will present advanced ultrasonic examination techniques for detection, characterization, and sizing of discontinuities caused by the welding process and also service- related damage mechanisms. These methods can be applied to piping, plate, and vessel components in petroleum, chemical, fossil, nuclear, and aerospace industries or any industry involved in ultrasonic examination of metallic product forms.
This “hands-on” practical advanced ultrasonic course includes shear wave and refracted longitudinal wave techniques for detection and signal characterization techniques to address the effects of echo dynamics, rise and fall time, and pulse duration for the identification of the ultrasonic signals.
