Welcome to [NDT Inspection Portal]’s phased array ultrasonics (PAUT) group, a place for professionals to connect and discuss the latest techniques and technologies in phased array ultrasonic inspection. PAUT is a non-destructive testing method that uses a phased array ultrasonic probe to inspect the condition of components such as pipelines, tanks, and pressure vessels. The probe consists of a number of individual ultrasonic elements that can be activated independently, allowing the direction and focus of the ultrasonic waves to be controlled in real-time. Our member group offers a platform for sharing knowledge and best practices on PAUT and its applications in various industries. Join our community of experts from around the world and be a part of the conversation on advancing the practice of phased array ultrasonic inspection.

unfortunately I’m not aware of any field portable equipment with these capabilities but would also be interested in seeing this functionality being implemented.
As you seem to have quite extensive experience with TCMP steel: What would be your approach for calibration when checking welds in a sheet steel construction? For welds in rolling direction and transverse to the rolling direction its manageable as you mentioned. But there are also all the angles in between, sometimes even within one weld, for example with a circular part in a cutout.
Our approach so far is to calibrate for one speed and for the highest losses of amplitude and if indications are found, we recalibrate for that specific area of interest and reevaluate.
