With recent developments in NDT methods and technologies, reliance on traditional methods due to standards, guidelines and practice is questionable. In a landscape where inspections are asking more of NDT processes and explanation, ensuring the right method is being used at the right time to provide the best results is crucial.
Non Destructive Testing 2017 will bring together experts from across the field of NDT to showcase the new techniques and technologies available. Attendees will understand how to get the most out of NDT and the reliability of different technologies. The event will also highlight recent developments being made with real time monitoring solutions and the testing of composites, enabling more efficient processes and reducing the rate of returns.

From the speakers: What are you most looking forward to by attending and presenting at this event?
Bruce Drinkwater (University of Bristol):
"I’m presenting on ultrasonic array imaging. This technology has come a long way in the last 10 years and is now widely used. I’m going to explore the basics of array imaging as well as some for the latest developments."
Richard Day (RWE npower):
"To have the debate around certification of NDT personnel; ownership of responsibility in demonstrating competence i.e. the individual, the NDT organisation, the employer or the end user of the service."
Key programme highlights:
- RWE and Network Rail discuss how to enhance the effectiveness of NDT
- Assess advanced NDT techniques and their ability to replace traditional methods with Plant Integrity, University of Southampton and University of Bristol
- Gain technique insights on Phased Array Ultrasonics, Guided Wave Testing and Thermography
- Review the reliability and probability of detection with NDT techniques
- Understand the impact Human Factors can have on NDT and how Amec Foster Wheeler consider and overcome errors as a result
- Hear how Dstl (Ministry of Defence) use NDE to support remnant life prediction of military platforms and its use in assessing structural integrity
- Assess the development of tools and techniques versus standards, guidelines and qualifications
- Join key discussions with RWE, Network Rail, Rolls-Royce, Dstl (MoD) and many more from across the field of NDT
- Hear how to apply the right method to the right inspection and how to align NDT with engineering for an integrated approach
- Gain the latest insights on Guided Wave, Phased Array and Thermography from Plant Integrity, University of Bristol and University of Southampton
