Ultrasonic computed tomography is discussed as a means of accomplishing the nondestructive inspection of wooden poles. With this tomography, propagation time of ultrasound is used in a wooden pole as the measured data for the computed tomographic reconstruction because of its measurement ease, unlike the conventional technique. As a result, it has been found that ultrasonic computed tomographic imagings of a wooden pole can be done easily by the method proposed herein and are sufficient for the… CONTINUE READING
