January 2020 Meeting Recap By Nicholas Cosentino
On January 21, 2019, the Mohawk-Hudson meeting consisted of dinner and a presentation by Dr. Vijay Nalladega on Infrared (IR) thermography for NDE.
Infrared (IR) thermography is one of the emerging nondestructive evaluation methods that has wide applications in many industries, including Aviation and Power. Thermography methods are faster, non-contact and are provide wide area inspection with applications such as detecting delaminations in composites, inspection of coatings, detection of cracks, quantitative measurements of wall thickness. This talk gave an overview of IR thermography for NDE applications and discussed different applications of IR thermography within GE for both Manufacturing and Services. Details of different modalities of IR inspection methods and examples of different types of defects detected were provided.
16 people attended the meeting at the Van Dyck Restaurant in Schenectady, NY.
