The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) was pleased to welcome a senior university lecture to an advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) workshop it organised earlier this month.
Dr Nikolaos Boulgouris, from Brunel University London, presented at the ‘Signals, systems and their applications to non-destructive testing research’ workshop held at TWI on 15 July. At the workshop Dr Boulgouris spoke to NSIRC students on the fundamentals of signal processing, including types of signals and systems, sampling issues, Fourier analysis of signals and the principles of signal processing for NDT.
The workshop also included presentations from Drs Sina Fateri and Shehan Lowe from TWI. Dr Fateri focused on ultrasonics and its applications to NDT, while Dr Lowe explained how to focus guided waves to enhance spatial resolution.
Students had the opportunity to discuss each topic with the presenters during the workshop, which proved to be a highly valuable day for all involved.
NSIRC plans to host more workshops for students in the future, to expand knowledge and bring in expert insight in the field of structural integrity.
