The Application Workshop is open!
NDT Method of each

Application Workshop
This workshop is open during May, 24 hours a day. The center of the workshop is an "Ask the Experts Forum". The top of the forum will feature papers of the panel of experts. A Workshop Library will provide further information on the theme. The discussion procedure is based on an interactive form - that means readers will fill in their questions or contributions, and readers' posts will be automatically transferred to the Workshop room and listed there. To make it as convenient as possible for you, the message board will include a mailing list. That means everyone (Registration) will automatically receive the submitted topic by email. For further information read the Workshop FAQ.

Parallel Implementation of the Filtered Back Projection Algorithm for Tomographic Imaging
Computer Tomography(CT) is used in several applications --- medicine, non-destructive testing/evaluation, astronomy and others to look inside objects and analyze internal structures. However, the problem in general is computationally very intensive. The results show that parallel processing is very viable for CT reconstruction and results in significant run time savings.

Recent Contract Awards in Nondestructive Testing

Neutrons Tackle Materials Stress
NIST researchers expect that an important result of this research will be development of a Reference Standard for testing and calibrating portable X-ray and ultrasonic instruments, which could then be used in the field to measure stress in airframes, railroad rails, or pipelines.

Inspecting Pipes
--NIST researchers have received a patent for a new method of measuring wall thickness and detecting flaws (such as cracks, and corrosion) in natural gas pipelines by using ultrasound. NIST is working with the Southwest Research Institute, under a contract with the Gas Research Institute, to show the practicality of the method.

Visualization of ultrasonic measurements of cylinder thickness
The NASA Lewis Research Center's (G-VIS lab) Graphics & VISualization laboratory.

Technology Opportunity Bulletin Micromachined Air-Coupled Capacitance Transducer
A joint project of Non-Contact Imaging of a Bonded Aluminum Lap-Joint together with the non-destructive evaluation (NDE) group at the Institute for Aerospace Research (IAR)
