Overview of Pulse Reflectometry

Pulse Reflectometry is a a remote nondestructive examination technique that sends pulsed waves (acoustic, electromagnetic, ultrasonic, etc.) through a medium and measures any ensuing reflections, which will be created by any discontinuities or defects in the medium. Some of the defects it is able to detect are through-wall holes, ID pitting, erosion, blockages, bulging, and plastic deformation.[1] The larger and more abrupt the discontinuity, the stronger the reflections created.
