Abstract

The present invention relates to methods for ultrasonic inspection of aircraft engine parts. More particularly, this invention relates to an automated method for developing scan plans for ultrasonic inspection of aircraft engine parts immersed in an acoustic coupling medium. The method takes into account inspection specifications, part drawings and inspection parameters to determine an optimized scan plan for an aircraft engine part.
