08:28 May-12-2009 NDT Webinar
In this month's issue we have announced two Webinar in our news. One from Olympus is called "The Benefits of Phased Array in Weld Inspection" at May 19,
The other one from SGS "Guided Wave Inspection Technique" at May 13,14,26.
Who knows about other NDT Webinar? And how useful they are in general? Or in particular the two recent one.
After you have visited them please post you opinion here.
I watched some of the Olympus NDT version of this. It seems to be a PowerPoint with audio. You did a
similar feature with the guest speaker at a conference 2-3 years ago. Perhaps the interaction
aspect with Webinar is a bit different and the technical implementation more convenient now than it
was for you 3 years ago. But ultimately this is a video presentation (from my simple perspective).
It seems to be a useful training tool, and it will also be an advertising tool.
The incorporation into the Forum is a good way for adding the information without worrying about the
monthly time schedule for publication.
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.
