A team of materials testing experts from Element Materials Technology’s
laboratory based in Hitchin, UK, has completed a study to demonstrate the
feasibility of a state-of-the-art technique to instantly evaluate defects within
composite aerospace structures.
Element’s Engaged Experts were part of a consortium that comprised
participants from industry-leading names, including Spirit Aerospace, LMS
SamTech and Wavelength NDT. The team successfully demonstrated proof-of-
concept to automatically
CSWIP launched a new scheme for Welding Examiners in October 2013 and one
of the first people to be awarded the certification by the Welding Specialist and
Practitioners Management Committee was Ravi Rajarao from TWI India.
The CSWIP Welding Examiner certification scheme, overseen by the Welding
Specialist and Practioners Management Committee, is to assure the competence
of examiners in conducting welder qualification testing. Ravi was presented with
his CSWIP certificate by Clare McGrath, Cert
The multidisciplinary symposium SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive
Evaluation will return to San Diego next month, drawing researchers from around
the world with reports on the latest in infrastructure safety testing, soft robotics,
energy harvesting devices, smart "electronic skin," and much more. The annual
event is sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics,
and features a visit from an "animal ambassador" from the San Diego Zoo’s
Centre for Bioinspiration.
Sequential full-field optical measurements of acoustic amplitude and phase of
ultrasonic fields can be used to investigate scattering phenomena.
Ultrasonic nondestructive testing (NDT) is a classical and powerful technology
that has long been used for routine industrial inspections. By incorporating the
latest scientific and technological advances, NDT methods have continuously
been improved. With ultrasonic NDT, the object under inspection is excited with
controlled sound waves that inter
AXT Pty. Ltd. has recently launched a new website dedicated to their x-ray tube
business. This new website is located at www.axtxraytubes.com and focuses on
replacement x-ray tubes for analytical, industrial and medical applications.
AXT has been involved in the x-ray tube market since their inception in 1991
when they became the first manufacturer in the world to offer refurbished side
window x-ray tubes for XRF spectrometers. Since that time, AXT’s x-ray tube
business has flourished and they
