"The World of NDE 4.0: Let the Journey Begin" published

Digital transformation of the inspection systems is inevitable. Pursuit of this opportunity amidst uncertainty makes a well-defined purpose and robust process essential. This book provides an overview of the purpose of NDE 4.0 (why?), underlying technologies (what?), and ways to overcome the challenges (how?) to successfully pursue the confluence of emerging digital technologies with the evolving physical world of inspection.

Ultrasonic Testing Sizing Method Comparison & Limitations

For quality assurance decisions and engineering analysis, the size of indications is one of the most crucial pieces of information. We tend to put a lot of confidence into the sizing methods we use in ultrasonic testing but each of those methods has its limitations. This leaves one big question - do we have an overlap between the various methods or is there a gap? This video compares the methods and their limitations.
