These alpha particles are tightly bound units of two neutrons and two protons each (He4 nucleus).BRP-Alpha Rays • Alpha Particles. Certain radionuclides of high atomic mass (Ra226. Alpha particles are emitted with discrete energies characteristic of the particular transformation from which they originate.

This results in a net change of one unit of atomic number (Z). The beta particles emitted by a specific radionuclide range in energy from near 0 up to a maximum value characteristic of the particular transformation.BRP-Beta Rays • Beta Particles. A nucleus with an unstable ratio of neutrons to protons may decay through the emission of a high speed electron called a beta particle. 3/16/2013 16 .

BRP-Gamma Rays • Gamma rays. The emission of gamma rays does not alter the number of protons or neutrons in the nucleus but instead has the effect of moving the nucleus from a higher to a lower energy state (unstable to stable). 3/16/2013 17 . alpha decay. A nucleus which is in an excited state may emit one or more photons (packets of electromagnetic radiation) of discrete energies. Gamma ray emission frequently follows beta decay. and other nuclear decay processes.

but minus the electron's binding energy. X-rays are also part of the electromagnetic spectrum and are distinguished from gamma rays only by their source (orbital electrons rather than the nucleus). Internal conversion occurs in a isotope when the energy is transferred to an atomic origin electron that is then ejected with kinetic energy equal to the expected gamma ray.BRP-X Rays • X rays. X-rays are emitted with discrete energies by electrons as they shift orbits following certain types of nuclear decay processes. resulting in the production of x-rays. Thulium170 is a good example of this type of disintegration. When Thulium-170 looses its energy it will exhibit a 60 % probability of interaction with an orbital electron thus producing x-radiation. The vacancy in the atomic structure is filled by an external electron. 3/16/2013 18 .

Van de Graaff developed one of the first particle accelerators in the early 1930’s. This device accelerates electrons to produce high energy radiation. it was determined that charged particles could be accelerated to very high speeds by driving them in a circular path. . the generator was capable of producing x-radiation in the 1 to 2 MeV range. The electrons ride on the belt and are collected at the opposite end on a high voltage terminal.X-Ray Sources Vandegraff Generator 1 – 5 Mev. 3/16/2013 45 . Not long after the development of the Van de Graaff generator. a glass/metal tube with a vacuum provides a path for particle acceleration away from the high voltage terminal. An American physicist. Known as the Van de Graaff generator. electrostatic generator. Here a heated filament supplies electrons for acceleration. Initially. whereby the accelerated particles can interact producing high energy radiation. J. The generator operates by projecting electrons onto a moving belt. At the end of the tube is a target. This was accomplished by the application of strong electromagnets. Continued design changes produced even higher energies. R. A variety of these have been developed to produce even higher energy radiation than that of the Van de Graaff generator.

O. Two `D’ shaped electrodes placed back to back with a gap between them are connected to a high voltage source inside of the box. Each time the charged particles cross the gap of the electrodes. the particles gain energy.X-Ray Sources Cyclotron 5 – 10 Mev. E. The Cyclotron is comprised of a large cylindrical box sandwiched between the poles of an electromagnet. the charged particles move in a circular fashion. Again in the early 1930’s. By rapidly reversing the electric charge on the electrodes. . and begin moving towards the outside of the cylindrical box. resulting in high energy x-radiation. The box is evacuated until a high vacuum exists. Charged particles are fed into the cylindrical box. This device is capable of accelerating charged particles (protons) in a circular path to energies that exceed 10 MeV. Once the charged particles reach the outer edge of the box. Lawrence also an American physicist developed the Cyclotron. . they are deflected towards the target. 3/16/2013 46 . and the due to the presence of the magnetic field of the electromagnets.

The Betatron operates on the principle of the transformer. and the secondary side is the electron stream that is being accelerated. 3/16/2013 47 .X-Ray Sources Betatron 5 – 10 Mev. The first Betatron developed produced a radiation energy of a little more than 2 MeV. Kerst’s Betatron is used to accelerate electrons (beta particles) to produce high energy x-radiation. Betatron. When the electrons have achieved maximum energy. the primary side consists of a large electromagnet. Continued development allowed the Betatron to generate energies as high as 300 MeV. was developed in the early 1940’s by a man name Donald Kerst at the University of Illinois. . the resulting interaction is the production of high energy x-rays. they are directed to a target. The electrons are accelerated in a circular tube known as a doughnut that has been evacuated.

and attraction by the next tube. capable of producing extremely high energy x-rays. and accelerated by a alternating high frequency voltage that is applied to the drift tubes. resulting in repulsion of the particles as they leave a tube. 3/16/2013 48 . the drift tubes alternate charges. It is this alternating high frequency that accelerates the particles as they cross the gaps between tubes/Present day Linear accelerators may be several miles long. Linear accelerator is designed to move charged particles at high velocities along a straight path to a target. Due to high frequency. The charged particles are fed into one end of the chamber. Linear accelerators are comprised of a series of drift tubes mounted inside of an evacuated chamber.X-Ray Sources Linear accelerator(Linac) 10-25 Mev.

Blows can also be caused by sand that is too fine. 3/16/2013 114 . or by sand that has a low permeability so that gas can't escape. too wet. These discontinuities are usually smooth-walled rounded cavities of a spherical. elongated or flattened shape. rusty or damp chills and chaplets. Another cause of blows can be attributed to using green ladles. Too high a moisture content in the sand makes it difficult to carry the excessive volumes of water vapor away from the casting. If the be trapped as the molten metal begins to solidify.Discontinuities -Casting Gas porosity or blow holes are caused by accumulated gas or air which is trapped by the metal.

Discontinuities -Casting Shrinkage is a form of discontinuity that appears as dark spots on the radiograph. Some documents designate these types by numbers. without actual names. (3) filamentary. There are at least four types: (1) cavity. Shrinkage can be recognized in a number of characteristic by varying appearances on radiographs. 3/16/2013 115 . Shrinkage is avoided by making sure that the volume of the casting is adequately fed by risers which sacrificially retain the shrinkage. (2) dendritic. in all portions of the final casting. Shrinkage assumes various forms but in all cases it occurs because molten metal shrinks as it solidifies. to avoid possible misunderstanding. and (4) sponge types.

Filamentary shrinkage usually occurs as a continuous structure of connected lines or branches of variable length.Discontinuities -Casting Dendritic shrinkage is a distribution of very fine lines or small elongated cavities that may vary in density and are usuallyunconnected.

It may be produced when metal solidifies between two original streams of melt.Discontinuities -Casting • Cavity shrinkage appears as areas with distinct jagged boundaries. cavity shrinkage usually occurs at a time when the melt has almost reached solidification temperature and there is no source of supplementary liquid to feed possible cavities 117 3/16/2013 . coming from opposite directions to join a common front.

Discontinuities -Casting Core shift shows itself as a variation in section thickness. 3/16/2013 118 . usually on radiographic views representing diametrically opposite portions of cylindrical casting portions.

They may be less or more dense than the matrix alloy and will appear on the radiograph. 3/16/2013 119 . as darker or lighter indications. The latter type is more common in light metal castings. respectively.Discontinuities -Casting Inclusions are nonmetallic materials in a supposedly solid metallic matrix.

Careful control of the melt. 3/16/2013 120 . These come from disintegrated portions of mold or core walls and/or from oxides (formed in the melt) which have not been skimmed off prior to introduction of the metal into the mold gates.

Discontinuities -Casting Sponge shrinkage shows itself as areas of lacy texture with diffuse outlines. 3/16/2013 121 . filamentary sponge shrinkage appears more blurred because it is projected through the relatively thick coating between the discontinuities and the film surface. generally toward the midthickness of heavier casting sections. Sponge shrinkage may be dendritic or filamentary shrinkage.

Cold shuts generally appear on or near a surface of cast metal as a result of two streams of liquid meeting and failing to unite. They generally appear singly and originate at casting surfaces.Discontinuities -Casting Cracks are thin (straight or jagged) linearly disposed discontinuities that occur after the melt has solidified. 3/16/2013 122 . They may appear on a radiograph as cracks or seams with smooth or rounded edges.

The effect of hot tears. Mottling is a radiographic indication that appears as an indistinct area of more or less dense images. they may call for explicit improvements in technique. Even experienced interpreters often have to check the condition by re-radiography from slightly different source-film angles. The condition is a diffraction effect that occurs on relatively vague. Mottling is caused by interaction of the object's grain boundary material with low-energy X-rays (300 kV or lower). while true casting discontinuities change only slightly in appearance. . They are mostly random in occurrence and not readily eliminated by specific remedial actions in the process. is similar to that of an ordinary crack. If flaws are identified as hot tears in larger runs of a casting type. how tears are usually systematic flaws. Inexperienced interpreters may incorrectly consider mottling as indications of unacceptable casting flaws. thin-section radiographs. as a stress concentration. most often with austenitic stainless steel. Shifts in mottling are then very pronounced. Misruns appear on the radiograph as prominent dense areas of variable dimensions with a definite smooth outline. The latter may occur due to overly hard (completely unyielding) mold or core walls. • • 3/16/2013 123 .Discontinuties-Casting • Hot tears are linearly disposed indications that represent fractures formed in a metal during solidification because of hindered contraction.

from long narrow indications to short wide indications. Undercut is a groove melted in the base metal at the edge of a weld and left unfilled by weld metal. see the Nondestructive Testing Handbook. It is mainly for reasons of casting repair that these descriptions of the more common weld defects are provided here. occurring at the centerline of the weld joint or at the fusion line.

Also called sugaring. strip. Oxidation is the condition of a surface which is heated during welding. fused root or adjacent base metal. Root undercut appears as an intermittent or continuous groove in the internal surface of the base metal. Arc strike is an indication from a localized heat-affected zone or a change in surface contour of a finished weld or adjacent base metal. It appears in radiographs as a sharply defined film density transition. Root edge condition shows the penetration of weld metal into the backing ring or into the clearance between backing ring or strip and the base metal. backing ring or strip along the edge of the weld root. fused root or adjacent base metal) resulting from complete melting of a localized region but without development of a void or open hole. Burn-through is a void or open hole into a backing ring.

Porosity can take many shapes on a radiograph but often appears as dark round or irregular spots or specks appearing singularly. Sometimes porosity is elongated and may have the appearance of having a tail This is the result of gas attempting to escape while the metal is still in a liquid state and is called wormhole porosity.

Discontinuities -Welding Cluster porosity is caused when flux coated electrodes are contaminated with moisture. The moisture turns into gases when heated and becomes trapped in the weld during the welding process. Cluster porosity appear just like regular porosity in the radiograph but the indications will be grouped close together. Fluoroscopy appearance 3/16/2013 138 .
