Interactive seminar focused on all aspects of ultrasonic testing technology for the composites
With increased use of composite materials in critical structural applications, it is more important than ever to independently assure structural integrity. Ultrasonic NDT has extensive application for composite materials. Traditional ultrasonic NDT methods are inappropriate and often misleading when applied to composite materials. In advanced technology applications such as aerospace, and with industrial emphasis on economics and safety, it is critical that engineers, designers and NDT personnel have a thorough working knowledge of advanced ultrasonic NDT technology. This Seminar covers all manual and automated mechanical wave methods including resonance, tap test, A, B, and C scans, as well as advanced ultrasonic methods such as guided waves testing, transducer arrays, and materials properties measurements.
Who Should Attend?
The Seminar is designed for inspectors, designers, engineers, managers and new users that desire technically sound working concepts in application of ultrasonic testing to composite materials including assessment of defects, composite damage and materials properties.
This is an open technology review and is based on technical literature, industrial and academic experience of the instructor collected from over 30 years of composite work. This Seminar includes information that is not found in books, and extensive coverage of practical experience.
This Seminar is designed to technically untangle this complex subject, and is presented in a way to comprehend the issues in a relatively short time.
A comparison between traditional approaches and composite materials requirement is utilized to guide the application concepts and interpretation issues. The course covers all mechanical wave methods and extensive examples of practical application data.
Classroom participation is expected during open question periods, active involvement of the class attendees with specific questions is encouraged.
