We are excited to announce that £1.4M of EPSRC and industry funding has been received to develop a new capability for real-time, remote ultrasonic imaging that can be used for NDE. Adaptive Laser Induced Phased Arrays (ALIPA) is a three-year project led by the Dept of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Strathclyde University, with support from Nottingham and Bristol Universities, which starts this autumn.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) held a Workshop on Technologies for Advanced NDE at High Temperatures on 30th September to summarise the state-of-the-art for performing inspections at more than 350°C. The aim was to build a network of vendors and technology researchers to facilitate collaborations in this area, with future nuclear builds being a key driver.
For the latest in NDE technologies and research, RCNDE’s virtual stand at the 1st HOIS World Conference on Digitalisation of Inspection and Asset Integrity in the Energy Industry is well worth a visit. Our first virtual exhibition, we are sharing our unique perspective as a bridge between industry need and the latest NDE research. Continue Reading
