Aerospace Workshop 12 April 2016: About the Workshop

12 April 2016, BAWA Centre, Filton, Bristol BS34 7RG, UK 

Workshop on Emerging Technologies for Aerospace

This workshop, organised by the Aerospace Committee of BINDT, will look at the emerging technologies in the NDT world that it is hoped will help NDT practitioners in their daily jobs. In particular, the workshop will be focused on the structural health monitoring (SHM) aspect of the NDT practitioners responsibilities, looking at how conventional and new NDT techniques and technology can be used to monitor the health of a particular aspect of a structure during flight.

The aim of the workshop is to inform delegates of the current state-of-the-art of SHM techniques, how they are deployed on aircraft (both civil and military), qualification of an SHM technique and a look at why SHM is used as opposed to normal/routine in-service inspection.

The workshop will also explore technologies that are currently being developed with SHM in mind and those that may assist in the future.

This year, the workshop will also feature a ‘Prove it!’ session, where equipment manufacturers and technology demonstrators will be put on-the-spot to showcase their technology and equipment by inspecting a preselected part and will be asked to present their findings at the end of the workshop.
