Paper Abstract

A special technique has been developed, enabling large area and contactless ultrasonic inspection of components. Ultrasonic Rayleighwaves are excited by proper laser irradiation of the component surface to be tested. The interaction of the propagating Rayleighwaves with near-surface flaws is visualized within the holographic soundfield picture taken from the insonicated part of the component. Thus, flaws as e.g. bonding flaws and cracks can be detected and described as concerns their shape and size.
