July Issue:: Forum introduction

This Month's Introduction

As usual, this month's issue will focus on our discussion theme.
If you are interested in other nondestructive testing topics, don't
hesitate to discuss them in this forum as well.

You may have noticed the new forum name "NDT.net Forum",
expanding the former UTonline forum to include the complete range of
NDT methods. If the discussion gets too crowded (we hope!) we'll open
more Forums for each NDT topic - obviously ultrasonic testing
as one of the major NDT methods would the first!

The NDT community, especially in Germany, was shocked by the train
accident in Eschede on June 3, 1998. It was all too clear that NDT
techniques had not been applied effectively. The theme is so important
that we continue our focus on Railway Testing - learning from failure!
Another big part of this issue highlighting
"The Reliability of NDT techniques and procedure of validation".
Last but not least we are pleased to present many other papers in this
issue - please access those via the front page.
Thanks to all participants for shearing their ideas with this forum!

We have provided the following updates:
Forum: NDT of railroad wheels at the German Bahn AG
A Summary of the Forum discussion.
We will comment and summarize 11 of the 33 forum discussions on this topic.
Forum: Railroad Wheel Testing of Shattered Rim
Todd Snyder's technical note received attached to his forum messages.
He had spent the last six months analyzing cracks in railroad wheels using
ultrasonic,magnetic, acoustic, and destructive metallurgical techniques.

Almost all the July issue is online,
but some updates or corrections may still proceed (we need a break),
better you'll wait with save to disk!

Best regards

Rolf Diederichs

SONOAIR - air-coupled Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection System

For highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic sensors,
...
the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material. These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first air-coupled phased-array UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers.

Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented

PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
...
nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
