  1. Robotic Eddy Current Condenser Inspection Equipment Capability

    SBC: Wolf Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N111059

    The purpose of this multi-phase program is to develop an autonomous system that is capable of aligning probes for eddy current inspections on steam condensers. The system aligns the eddy current inspection probe over the appropriate condenser tube based on a provided positional information and visually signals the operator to continue with inspection following a prior obstruction detection check. ...

  8. Nondestructive Damage Characterization of Complex Aircraft Structures by Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF121129

    ABSTRACT: Computational electromagnetics and inverse methods are the foundations of modern methods of eddy-current nondestructive evaluation (NDE). In this project, we apply these methods to the problem of characterizing, in three dimensions, damage in complex aircraft structures. As the maintenance of the structural components of aircraft moves from time-based maintenance to condition-based mai ...

  10. Stochastic Reliability Metrics for Damage Characterization Based on Parametric and Voxel-Based Estimation Algorithms

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF112130

    ABSTRACT: To achieve the objectives of condition-based maintenance plus prognosis (CBM+), and realize its potential, the location and size of damage at any length scale, e.g., either a crack or a microstructural perturbation, needs to be determined with statistical metrics to feed prognostic reasoners and risk assessments. Previous work by Victor Technologies has focused on developing estimation ...
