|New Services for the NDT community|
NDT.net continues the development of smart database features. The main new
features are a real time analysis of readers search behavior and a new
authors & institutes search form.
What is Hot in NDT?
The data of 43193 searches was collected
continuously over about 10 days, 24 hours a day and it still proceeds. The
keyword data and literature data is shown in real time on the database
search page. We prevented manipulation of specific value in the ranking list
if readers would click on the displayed data. To other query data, for which
it is more difficult to prevent manipulation, only exhibitors have access to
these data. The Appendix showing snap shots of search query data.
The keyword ranking shows us that Ultrasonic Testing (UT) (28%) is the most
asked NDT Method which is followed by only 30% of requests for Radiographic
Testing (RT) (11%) together with Electromagnetic Testing (ET) (10%) and
Acoustic Emission (9%) (AE) on a similar level. In respect to applications
the civil engineering market (135) leads the list and is followed by
aerospace and power plants, pipelines, railway, steel, automotive etc.
Also the literature ranking shows some interesting results. It was
predictable that the ECNDT 2006 (28%) would be on top but it was a surprise
that the WCNDT 2000 (17%) stands before the WCNDT 2004 (14%). Be aware that
here are not counted hits on the documents, e.g. blind hits via google,
only those queries which have been manually performed by individuals are
Who is Who in NDT?
The first Author & Institutes search form was already launched awhile ago.
Now a new search form offers much more features.
Since all article data has been collected strictly in a structured manner,
we now have plenty of options to evaluate the data. One thing is a list of
Top 100 authors or institutes having most articles in the database.
Are you interested in civil engineering? Search 'civil' together filter
institution and the results shows who is who in civil engineering market!
Just play with new search and learn how many possibilities exist.
We have already received feedback from users. Subhas Mukhopadhyay from New
Zealand wrote: "I have evaluated the search function. It is working fine. I
am really very pleased to see so many papers and authors are listed. It is
wonderful. Very good work." and Domingo Mery: "I find it is great. I think
it is a very good tool for R&D. I found very interesting things.
Is something not working correct or another feature you would like to see?
