The signals contain information regarding the distance between boundary layers of different materials that measure the inner and outer diameter, ovality, wall thicknesses and sagging (figure 3).
The visual assessment of the sample included the analysis of several characteristics that are likely to influence mechanical response of the utility poles, namely, diameter, ovality, taper, knots, slope of grain, and growth rate.
The measured ovality of the inner surface geometry is in the range of millimetres instead of tens of micrometres that is the tolerance for outer geometry.
To avoid ovality and tearing in polytetrafluorothylene (PTFE) tube coating, practitioners report that the ideal DRB is 1, and that it must lie between 0.
Q-Test has two measurement modules: Q-Test 1 is based on pneumatics and measures leak, burst and torque parameters of both plastic and laminate tubes using high quality precision transducers; Q-Test 2 adds the ability to measure length, diameter, ovality and side-seam parameters using both laser and high resolution optical systems.
