NDT 2020 Webinar Week Gets Underway

Mon, 14 September, 2020

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is holding a special week of non-destructive testing webinars this week, with several TWI staff and students involved in the virtual event.

Thursday 16 September will see TWI Technology Fellow Prof Ian Cooper chairing a session on automated robotic inspection (starting at 13:50), while there will also be several paper presentations across the week too. 

At 10:20 on Tuesday, 15 September, Bristol University student Kanav Prashar is due to present a paper detailing work done in collaboration between the university and TWI on ‘Ultrasonic Surface Reconstruction and Adapted Imaging for Non-Destructive Testing.’ This will be followed at 15:00 by TWI’s Channa Nageswaran presenting on behalf of NSIRC student Xuening Zou. Xuening’s work is being undertaken at TWI alongside Loughborough University and is about ‘Automatic Defect Detection and Localisation in Austenitic Stainless Steel Cladding using Ultrasonic Inspection.’

Two more papers are due to be presented on Thursday 17 September, with the first taking place at 14:05 as Manchester University student Oliver Helps presents his work on ‘Multi-Energy XCT Imaging of Highly Contrasting Components using Optimised Projection Fusion.’ Oliver will be followed at 15:00 by work from Brunel University’s Bojie Sheng. Again, this will be presented by co-author Channa Nageswaran, but will detail, ‘An automatic Non-Destructive Inspection Based on the Combination of Multiple Phased Array Probes and Convolutional Neural Network.’

London South Bank University student, Nagu Sathappan will close the TWI presentations for the week at 9:50 on Friday, 18 September with her paper on the ‘Development of an Underwater and High-Temperature Sensor for Permanently Installed Corrosion Monitoring System,’ which was co-authored with TWI’s Giorgos Afsis.

We would like to thank BINDT for inviting us to take part in this year’s Webinar Week, which replaces the 2020 annual conference. You can find out more about the event here.
