  • Includes information not found in books and extensive coverage of practical experience.
  • Seminar is designed to untangle this complex subject and is formatted to better comprehend the technical issues in a short time.
  • Presentations cover all nondestructive testing methods and extensive examples of practical application data. Explains why composites cannot be tested based on metals procedures.
  • Small class formatted for interactive questions from the participants. 

With increased use of composite materials in critical structural applications, it is more important than ever to independently assure structural integrity.  NDT has extensive applications for composite materials.  Traditional 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 NDT technology. This Seminar covers all NDT methods including X-ray, thermal, microwave, optical, sherography, ultrasonic, resonance, tap test, A, B, and C ultrasonic scans, as well as advanced NDT/NDE methods such as digital radiography, CT X-rays, guided waves testing, transducer arrays, and materials properties measurements.  The attendees participate in real lab demonstrations and hands on use of ultrasonic scanning equipment manned by experienced test engineers.  Sessions are broad in scope encompassing a variety of composite test samples and test geometries.  Guidelines are provided for the design, specifications and operation of the automated NDT systems.
