Time- of-flight diffraction (TOFD) method of ultrasonic testing is a sensitive and accurate method for the non destructive testing of welds for defects. TOFD was invented in UK in the 1970s initially as a research tool. The use of TOFD enabled crack sizes to be measured more accurately, so that expensive components could be kept in operation as long as possible with minimal risk of failure.
