Phased array inspection of large size forged steel blocks

The objective of this project is to integrate ultrasonic imaging into nondestructive inspection process performed in industrial settings on large size steel blocks. Indeed, Fink Steel is specialised in manufacturing large size forged steel and need to warrant the quality of each part before shipping using ultrasounds. This imaging method based on the same principle as echography is commonly used for numerous industrial applications. However, the large dimensions involved in this project require new transducer design. Based on his previous material studies and simulations, the intern will validate his work by performing measurements on calibration blocks and actual blocks with the final designed phased array transducer. These results will be exploited in order to confirm the imaging probe capabilities and implement a defect database.
