Zetec to host webinar on ‘time reversal’ inspection technique for composite structures in aerospace


Zetec Inc, a global leader in NDT solutions, will host a one-hour webinar on the ‘Time Reversal Technique’, a promising and proven application of phased array ultrasonic technology for the inspection of composite structures after manufacturing.

The webinar, which will be presented by Daniel Richard, Technical Manager for Zetec, will be offered from 11-12 April 2017.

“The inspection of composite structures (for example CFRP) in the aerospace industry can be complex and challenging,” said Richard. “Misalignments between probe and surface can frequently occur and significantly affect data quality. The time reversal technique uses sound beam characteristics to compensate for probe-to-component misalignment conditions.”

The webinar will provide: an overview of the principles of the time reversal technique, including a demonstration off how high-performance, portable phased array units can be used to apply the technique for better coverage and detection capability on various composite structures in aerospace applications; examples comparing the performance, data quality and inspection efficiency of the time reversal technique compared to traditional phased array; and a review of quantitative data analysis tools for evaluating flaw indications in composite components.

The webinar will conclude with a question and answer session.
