  1. Automated ICBM wall thickness measurements

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: AF181009

    The degree of corrosion for steel wall enclosures, buildings, tanks, and pipes can be inferred by measuring the thickness of the steel .Standard practice is for inspectors to use hand-held ultrasonic instruments that require the application of a couplant for acceptable measurements.This practice is very slow and laborious.For silos, an autonomous wall climbing system is proposed that uses an EMAT ...

  6. Non-Destructive Evaluation of Thermal Spray Coatings Using Ultra-High Frequency Micro-Induction Inspection Technology

    SBC: GRID LOGIC INCORPORATED            Topic: AF181049

    The U.S. Air Force needs to non-destructively and easily inspect thermal spray metallic and ceramic thermal spray coatings on critical surfaces of gas turbines. Current methods fail to adequately detect sub-surface and interfacial defects, and are cumbersome to use, particularly with conformal geometries.Issues exist with capturing accurate measurements over a range of coating and substrate materi ...
