Development of methods for the analysis of multi-mode TFM images

Abstract : TFM (Total Focusing Method) is an advanced post-processing imaging algorithm of ultrasonic array data that shows good potential in defect detection and characterization. It can be employed using an infinite number of paths between transducer and focusing point. Depending upon the geometry and the characteristics of the defect in a given part, there are not the same modes that are appropriate for the defect reconstruction. Furthermore, non-physical indications can be observed, prone to misinterpretation. These imaging artifacts are due to the coexistence of several contributions involving several modes of propagation and interactions with possible defects and/or the geometry of the part. Two methods for filtering artifacts and reducing the number of TFM images are developed and illustrated.
