Issue: 2016-10
The 8th International Symposium on NDT in Aerospace will be held in Bangalore/India at the Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts during November 3-5, 2016. In all around 90 abstracts have been received which is another new record achieved within the series of this symposium. Besides the traditional topics on NDT and NDE of aeronautical structures topics related to space and missile applications will now also be addressed. A plenary talk by Prof. K.P.J. Reddy will touch upon the completely new field of using NDT for measuring hypersonic loads, a possible world premiere publication. India being the host country this year will be explicitly showing its capabilities from a latest research and technology point of view as well as from the view of industrial applications. There is therefore hardly a better opportunity than attending this year’s NDT in Aerospace Symposium to get an insight into latest Indian and also other international developments in aerospace related NDT/NDE technology and to establish the respective technology and business relationships into the over proportionally growing Indian aerospace related NDT market. The following plenary speakers will talk at the symposium about topics as to the below:

  • Dr Yapa Rajapakse , Programme Manager Solid Mechanics, Office of Naval Research, USA: NDT/NDE in Military Aviation (tentative title)
  • Prof. K P J Reddy, Professor, Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India: Hand Operated Shock Tube (Reddy Tube) for Non Destructive Testing
  • Prof. Alfredo Guemes, Professor of Aeronautics, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain: Fibre optics technology in composite structures in the context of structural health monitoring (tentative title)
  • Dr R. Sunder, BISS Research, Bangalore, India: Real-Time Tracking of Damage Growth in CFRP Composites during Testing for Durability and Fracture
  • Matthias Buderath, Airbus Defence & Space, Manching, Germany: Integrated System Health Monitoring and Management Initiatives and Challenges in Military Aviation (tentative title).

In addition, there will be around 15 invited speakers, who will be taking on various aspects of NDE/NDT, which includes, composites, structural health monitoring (SHM), novel sensors, etc.. The topics being addressed in the different sessions include NDT/NDE in aerospace related to:

  • Composite materials
  • Metallic materials
  • Guided waves
  • Simulation of SHM
  • Emerging technologies
  • Applications.

This year there will also be two focused theme oriented special plenary sessions on:

  • SHM Simulation Platform Including Live Demonstrations
  • NDE Aspects for Military Aviation and Defense.

In the sessions about 15 invited speakers drawn from India and Europe will be dwelling on the advances made in NDE/NDT methodologies in these focus areas. Indian researchers from academia, government research labs, defense research labs and industries will be strongly represented to share their technology with an international audience. Some of the industries such as Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd., General Electric, Textron or United Technologies Aerospace Systems are some of the industries being represented at the symposium to share their knowledge and to seek for further collaborations. Some of them will even contribute to the technical visits, which is another asset along this symposium.

As can be seen from the above a wide variety of topics in NDE/NDT will be discussed in this symposium. All those working in the field of NDE/NDT are encouraged to take advantage to attend. This also includes exhibitors of NDT technology who want to showcase their products and broaden their business into an emerging market by registering for the exhibition, which will be organized as part of the symposium.
