Building on previous popular seminars in this series, the Institution's Non Destructive Testing 2019 seminar will provide a clear technical overview of current techniques and technologies available for those carrying out non destructive testing.
Attendees will also hear the results of the latest findings from research and academia, bridging the gap between current best practice and future applications for enhanced testing methods.
Take away lesson learned from industry, with case study examples from Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Petrochemicals Renewables and others, and understand how your organisation can achieve faster, more accurate and cost-effective testing.
Key topics for 2019 include:
- Making the most of current NDT techniques and managing the challenges they pose
- Cutting-edge NDT research and technologies being trialled
- Standards and design requirements
- Detecting defects in a variety of materials including composites
- Validation of techniques and reducing service downtime
- Managing the challenge of corrosion under and within installations
- Non-Destructive Testing and Structural Health Monitoring
- Moving towards simulation and calculating the probability of detection
Confirmed speakers include:
- Gethin Davies, Lead Innovation Engineer, Jaguar Land Rover
- James Downing, Chief NDT Engineer, Marine & Technology, Babcock International Group
- Ben Karkera, Mechanical Engineer, NDE Technology, BAE Systems, Maritime – Submarines
- Jérôme Delemontez, NDT expert Engineer, EDF - Division Technique Générale
- Anthony Croxford, Professor of Ultrasonics, University of Bristol
Plus: hear from BAE Systems, Office for Nuclear Regulation, Rolls Royce Submarines, University of Bristol and more!
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO ATTEND?:
"I believe that it is important to highlight NDT is used in all forms of engineering and areas such as forensics, medicine, art, food processing, military and security with some novel applications using drones, miniaturisation, embedded sensors for structural health or condition monitoring. High functioning organisations accept that non-destructive examination and health management systems play a critical role in the development, utilisation and dynamic evaluation of the structural integrity of advanced materials and aerospace systems; therefore other engineering functions will benefit from exposure from this event."
Tom O’Hare, Engineering Manager, Bombardier Aerospace
"To share both our successes and failures, and to give some examples of our own experiences. The objective is to sustain and to maintain the NDT profession at a good level of efficiency."
Jérôme Delemontez, NDT expert Engineer, EDF - Division Technique Générale
"It’s vital to bridge the gap in NDE between the academic/technology side and the practitioner side. Attendance at conferences is a very cost-effective way to access R&D work and industry trends as well as getting outside of an individual company bubble to see what’s going on outside and how this could be applicable to your work."
Peter Wood, Head of NDE, Rolls-Royce Submarines
Co-Located with: Non Invasive Inspection Technologies
Inspection managers need to have safer methods of performing inspection of pressure equipment, often in hazardous environments, and are increasingly looking to automated and remote methods involving drones, free swimming devices, crawlers and other non-invasive methods.
Hear how site operators are currently employing these new technologies and learn key lessons to overcome the challenge of inspecting previously inaccessible areas while balancing safety and costs.
