New test results according US or AE on sandwich structures
I am searching for informations about the State-of-the-art of Ultrasonic and Acoustic inspections techniques specially on thick sandwich panels (GFRP/CFRP skins and Balsa/PVC cores). Anyone aware of any new realeased reports, new results or new informations of any kind that is related to this subject the last two-three years?
Thanking you in anticipation I will look forward to hear from you soon.

My company markets the Quasar International Resonant Inspection equipment, manufactured in USA.
This is a very high tech version of acoustic testing, capable of extending to the Megahertz range of frequencies, and with very powerful compensation algorithms to compensate for many variables that limit the acoustic technique.
Contact me on Godfrey@hands-ndt.co.uk, or look at our web site www.hands-ndt.co.uk or that or Quasar www.quasarintl.com

Re: New test results according US or AE on sandwich structures Dear Thomas,
The NDE team at CSM Materialteknik (SAAB Aerospace Group, Linköping , Sweden) has a long experience in testing of GFRP sandwich structures with resonnance, MIA, US, Acoustic emission , X-ray and shearography. Our activities range from production testing to development of new techniques and applications. Don't hesitate to contact us if you want to discuss further the matter with us.

Ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of concrete structures А1040 MIRA
Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal
structure of objects from conc
rete, reinforced concrete, different
stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access
to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for
searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions,
holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects.
The all-digital Novascope 6000 is a portable, ultra-high precision
thickness gauge for high-speed
Novascope 6000 has unmatched capabilities and unique features
•Superior Resolution with high contrast, high-speed color RF
•High pulser voltage
•Real-time video output
•Increased internal/external data storage
•Programmable SetUp features
•Battery & AC Powered
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
