Next generation NDT: working with aerospace composites
February 18 UTC-7
Now an established part of aircraft, manufacturers nevertheless require the best and most advanced NDT to verify that composite materials are defect free and capable of meeting the demands of a flight environment. Meanwhile, airlines and operators require ever-more efficient and effective tools and techniques to detect and analyse composites in aircraft structures.
Combined with continued innovations in manufacturing methods and the composite materials themselves, the challenges for engineers and technicians conducting NDT are numerous and evolving. However, these challenges can be met with the help of the latest NDT technologies and tools, such as x-ray and CT digital imaging, AI, machine learning, and robotics.
Using real-world examples and case studies, our panel of experts from across the sector will explain how existing NDT-professionals can expand their knowledge and capabilities and provide an introduction to those new to the profession.
Discussion will be focused on advancing NDT for the benefit of the whole testing community, sharing problems and solutions, technical knowledge and best management practices for attendees.
