Call for Papers: NDT of Smart Materials and Nanotechnology (SMN 2007 Harbin, China)

Call for Papers and Announcement International Conference on Smart Materials and Nanotechnology in Engineering

1st July-4th July, 2007, Harbin, China
Organized by Harbin Institute of Technology, China

Theme: Non-Destructive Testing Applications
Theme Chair: Brian Stephen Wong and Rolf Diederichs

Smart Materials and smart structures are being utilized much more in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) applications particularly in the aerospace industry. For example defects such as cracks are being detected by systems using multiple sensors on aircraft structures and many phased array ultrasonic systems are being developed and used for critical aircraft inspections. There is also increasing interest in structural health monitoring by using embedded sensors in aerospace or civil structures.

Papers are sought which focus on defect detection in structures using piezoelectric, electromagnetic or other types of smart sensors. Although emphasis will be on aircraft structures other applications are also welcome.

The conference proceedings will be published by SPIE, and Non-Destructive Testing Papers will be also published in NDT.net.

Product Spotlight

Exertus Dual 120

The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192 sources or Selenium 75 source
...
s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.

Robotic laser shearography enables 100% inspection of complex, flight-critical composite structures

An article in “Composites World Magazine” showcases Non Destructive Testing of aero-structures
...
with Laser Shearography. Over the years Dantec Dynamics has supplied many solutions for the aerospace industry. Referring to specific customer projects several of these cases are examined to outline the advantages of using Laser Shearography for automated defect detection.

Digital Radiography for Concrete Inspection

In the construction industry (buildings, bridges) there is a need for fast non- destructive means,
...
most commonly to locate targets (Pipes, Re-bars, Conduit, Fittings etc.) within concrete structures prior to drilling, cutting or coring. Measuring reinforcements is also performed for static calculations and to detect corrosion problems and damages. Cracks and voids can also be visualized. The examinations are not only restricted to concrete constructions; they can also be applied to reinforced masonry made of natural stones or bricks.
