Responding to complexity and particularity welding on the geometry of TKY tubular node, this paper constructs mathematical model of tubular joint weld of arbitrary section by simplifying the geometry structure, and draws welded joints and ultrasonic sound beam lines based on the actual specifications in order to solve the problems of low efficiency, positioning difficulty, missing inspection and etc. The computeraided simulation technology can realize the visualization in the beam coverage model of welded joints, which can commendably guide the design of ultrasonic phased array inspection and overcome the blindness of the instrument detection parameters, thus improving the effectiveness and pertinence of the actual detection. Study shows that it is beneficial to enhance the effectiveness of the detection tubular joint weld by employment of Visual beam and ultrasonic phased array technology.
