PhD Student Position Available
Job Location: South Korea
offered by Chonnam National University
PhD Student Position Available
Applications are invited for a PhD student position in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) starting from March 2010 or as soon as possible. Non-Destructive Testing is now the fastest growing industry for effective evaluation of materials, structures and pipelines. The PhD student will be involved in the research work for Regional Innovation Center (RIC) at Chonnam National University in South Korea, which is supported by Korean Government and various industries. The student will be using advanced NDT diagnostics tools and software for the evaluation of materials for petro-chemical plants. The work will be implemented by the close collaboration with industries.
The successful candidate is expected:
To do experimental research on evaluation of materials and solid structures using ultrasonic and other NDT techniques
To develop the analysis software with C++
To carry out FEM simulations of ultrasonic wave propagation, and analysis of defects in materials and structures
To post-process measured and predicted results in conjunction with a physically-based analysis
To compare experimental measurements and predictions to extract relevant features
To document results and findings
Candidates should have a Master/Diploma degree in Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Material Science, Physics or equivalent, required to pursue a PhD-study. This should ideally be complemented by the following skills:
Excellent academic standing
Knowledge in solid state physics and material science
Experience with Finite Element Analysis (FEM) and numerical methods
Experience with programming using C or C++
Fluent in English (minimum requirements TOEFL-80IBT, 213CBT, 550PBT or IELTS-6.5)
Willingness to work in an inter-cultural environment
The preference will be given to the candidates who obtained Masters Degree in NDT. Please include a list of publications in NDT, if there is any.
Successful applicant will be offered a monthly salary of 800.000 Korean Won, in addition to the full support of the tuition fees (about 6.000.000 Korean Won/year).
Please send by e-mail your request and copies of documents indicating your academic background to professor Ki-Seong Kim email@example.com. These documents will include your degree certificate(s), transcripts of marks achieved in previous degrees, and the evidence of English language qualifications (a copy of TOEFL or IELTS score), if your first language is not English and you do not hold a degree from an English-speaking country.
If required, the candidates may be interviewed by telephone during the selection process.
Varex Imaging Large Field of View (FOV) Digital Detector Arrays (DDAs)
A larger FOV DDA can reduce the space and volume of the X-ray inspection system on the factory floor
, enable faster scanning times, better throughput and better resolution images at a lower dose. Customers can also save time and money. With these benefits in mind, Varex Imaging has designed a family of large FOV detectors (4343HE, XRD 1611, 4343DX-I, 4343CT) for our industrial imaging customers.
Wireless TOFD scanner
Quick, accurate and highly reproducible welds testing.
The System operates wirelessly and is compat
ible with any type of
Windows based Laptop, Desktop or Tablet.
Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented
PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
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?
GEKKO, Standard and Advanced phased-array for Easier inspection
With a 64-channel parallel architecture, GEKKO is a flaw detector
offering at the same time conven
tional UT, standard PAUT, TOFD and
real-time Total Focusing Method (TFM). GEKKO improves the
detection, with better defects characterization
and sizing as well as for misoriented defects.
Some procedures require standard UT, others TOFD or PA. GEKKO
includes all these techniques to offer a versatile and field-ready
