Research Facilities

Ultrasound is not only a useful inspection tool for classical materials, but for new novel materials as well. However, innovative materials, such as those being developed by other research teams at the GT-CNRS UMI 2958, may be highly complex and require sophisticated inspection techniques and appropriate expertise. Within the framework of developing techniques and innovations that can be applied to the ultrasonic evaluation of new materials, the research of the Laboratory for Ultrasonic Non-destructive Evaluation follows three main themes. Within each theme, numerical and experimental research is conducted. For the theoretical work we have developed plane wave expansion tools and finite element code, etc. For experimental work, the lab is equipped with a custom-designed polar/C-scan apparatus, a Ritec Snapscan for nonlinear acoustics, and a Polytec laser vibrometer, in addition to other laboratory equipment
