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.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
