09:35 Feb-29-2000 Incoming Article: Design of Ultrasonic Transducers ... by E. Nesvijski
Edouard Nesvijski submitted an article (now at NDTnet) as final contribution to the Forum as the month's virtual Chairman.
http://www.ndt.net/article/v05n02/nesvi/nesvi.htm "On Design of Ultrasonic Transducers and Accuracy of Velocity Measurement". The article offers some critical views on the problems of ultrasonic transducer design including some recommendations.
I think it is an interesting topic on transducer design and applications. It seems that this topic may lead to an interesting discussion and we invite manufactures to participate.
We would like to express our thanks to Edouard Nesvijski for his excellent contributions in this month's Forum Session.
Best regards, Rolf Diederichs
Who would like to be Forum Chairman in another month?
Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to
revolutionizing the handling and perfor
mances of portable X-Ray
sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar
portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while
continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES
generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window,
an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes
are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness
and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small
size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change
the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a
positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment
The Basque Research centre IK4-IDEKO has developed a state-of-the-art ultrasonic inspection system f
or the train wheel. This system secures a sound condition of train wheels and is thus a significant contribution to rail transport safety. The device was delivered to CAF recently and its use allows the manufacturer to become an approved supplier of rolling stock in Italy, as it meets the demanding homologation standards of this country. \\\\r\\\\n
