Structural Detection of Welded Steel Regions
- Wednesday, 26 October 2011
A non-destructive test mechanism is needed to detect fracture toughness, hardness, and microstructure properties of 1/8" steel weld zones. The device must measure the characteristics of flash upset welding of steel. In addition, the standalone technology should not function in a continuous, in-line manufacturing process. The detection system must also identify properties of a welded region, compare these results to both good and bad profiles, and alarm the operator of a specific failure type.
