TWI non-destructive testing team manager, Channa Nageswaran presented on the ‘Development and Qualification of AI Technology for UT Systems’ at an online TWI event on Monday, 11 April 2022.
Providing interest to those working in the nuclear, aerospace, and oil and gas industries, Channa used his expertise in ultrasonic testing techniques to discuss how the use of artificial intelligence (AI) could be confidently adopted by industry.
Ultrasonic testing (UT) is a non-destructive evaluation technique that uses high frequency sound to detect defects in components, parts and structures.
While it used to assess the quality of parts without damaging them, UT can be difficult to perform on parts with a high curvature or intricate shapes.
As a result, such parts are often inspected manually, leading to increased inspection times and inconsistent results.
Could AI solve this problem and provide fast, accurate and repeatable results?
