Abstract [en]

An experimental investigation into the linear reflection and generation of the second harmonic component following the incidence of an ultrasonic wave onto a dry or water-confining interface between elasto-plastic steel-steel surfaces in contact is presented. The results on dry interfaces show that, although the theoretical models currently used to estimate the stiffness of such interfaces constitute a valid framework, the statistics of asperities in contact requires further development to account for the effects of the elasto-plastic deformation. Similarly, the results with water-confining interfaces indicate that current models not accounting for the liquid-mediated forces between the solid surfaces cannot explain the results presented here. In fact, the experimental evidence is interpreted as suggesting that structural repulsive forces may be responsible for the observed phenomena. Finally. the level of second harmonic generation for these interfaces offers support by the development of inspection techniques which exploit such wave phenomena for the detection of partially closed and dry, or nearly open and water-trapping stress-corrosion surface-breaking cracks.

Abstract [en]

The subject of this thesis is the development of new ultrasound inspection techniques for detection of cracks that are smaller than the wavelength of the inspecting wave and the characterization of cracks in fluid-filled pipes as either surface-breaking or subsurface.

The spectrum of the scattered field of a partially closed crack comprises harmonic components not expected to be found in the case of linear scatterers such as pores or inclusions. Paper A presents an experimental investigation into the linear reflection and generation of the 2nd harmonic component following the incidence of an ultrasonic wave onto a dry or water-confining interface formed by elasto-plastic steel-steel surfaces in contact. The results indicate that water has an unexpected effect on the reflection, at low interfacial pressures, suggesting that fluid mediated forces play a role not accounted for in current models. The level of the generation of the 2nd harmonic measured provides support for further development of the technique for detection of dry, partially closed cracks or fluid-filled, nearly open cracks.

A theoretical model describing the nonlinear scattering of acoustic waves by surface-breaking cracks with faces in partial contact is presented in Paper B. Both linear and nonlinear response of the crack are shown to be the largest for a SV wave incident on the surface containing the crack at an angle just above the critical angle for longitudinal waves.

A method which provides information on whether a fracture is surface-breaking or subsurface has been modelled and its optimal experimental set-up examined in Paper C. The main assumption of the model is that water carried by pressurized pipes infiltrates and fills a surface-breaking crack, while a subsurface crack is dry. The model simulates an inspection in which the modulation technique is employed and the surface hosting the crack is not accessible. A parameter, constructed with signals recorded in backscattering configuration during a modulation cycle, is examined and shown to provide a clear criterion to distinguish subsurface from surface-breaking cracks when a SV wave at 45 degree incidence is employed as a probe.

Finally, in Paper D the modulation technique is experimentally tested on steel beams that host surface-breaking fatigue cracks. The method is shown to be a successful tool to distinguish a dry from a fluid-filled crack. Furthermore, it is revealed that the dynamics of the fluid needs to be accounted for in a more accurate simulation tool.
