Estimation of Test Reliability by Restrictive Sampling of Defective Products Rejected during Automated Ultrasonic Nondestructive Testing of Pipes

  • P. A. Senyutkin
Acoustic Methods


Dependences of the reliability components in ultrasonic testing of pipes on the rejection quality level are considered. Methods for calculating the reliability by restricted sampling from a group of rejected pipes are proposed. The obtained results are in good agreement with experimental data of other authors.
