Categorize of NDT Methods & Techniques (former MFL topic)

MFL (Magnetic Flux Leakage) is it an ET, MT or a method alone? - Michael Trinidad 14:48 10/03/2000

I opened this new topic since Michael's good question led to a more general discussion.
From the discussion I recognize that there are a different demands on how to categorize NDT methods.
Its depends if you see it form the certification body, literature or exhibition/buyers guide point of view.
It could be a challenge for NDT societies or the ICNDT to develop a categorized index of terms for use
in information retrieval (so called thesaurus).

This may take a long time until such a standard can be ready.
Then we'll have to face the problem how to deal with the history,
that means to change already build catalogs in prints and on homepages.
It is my old vision that this job can do one NDT Database on the Internet (search from one box).
We started already to create and host the electronic addition of conference proceedings or other publications
on our Internet Database, e.g. ECNDT'98 Proceedings etc. and now the WCNDT'00.
Internet users can search through one connectivity NDT Database which can be
obviously be more effective than browsing through different e-catalogs or search engines.

I hope that we'll get support for this development in discussions with Societies and ICNDT in Rome.

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
...
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.
