Detection of interlayer delamination in W monoblock of ITER divertors via electromagnetic acoustic transduction

The W monoblock is one of the key components in divertors of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). During fabrication, it is prone to interlayer delamination posing a severe threat to integrity of diverters and safe operation of ITER. This opens up the research of efficient nondestructive evaluation techniques for quality assessment… CONTINUE READING
