The Resonance Acoustic Method (RAM) is a long-standing nondestructive test (NDT) that measures the structural responses of a part. These responses are a set of unique and measurable natural frequency (resonance) data.
Manual means of performing NDT and human evaluation of the results is trending more and more to automated, digitized and artificial intelligence interpretation of the results whenever economically possible.
Manual or human manipulated NDT is still the primary means of performing Nondestructive Testing (NDT) in unique or one-off applications. Mechanical aids and/or computer assisted manipulation and scanning devices can reduce data gathering time on the site of the item being inspected.
Quality control can be held up by complex parts which take time to measure, internal issues such as non-compliance and rework, and external problems, such as customer complaints. These challenges slow down productivity.
When it comes to selecting an industrial nondestructive test (NDT) inspection system, quality managers invest considerable time researching systems and considering the impact of every available feature on their business.
Zeta potential (ζ) is a key indicator of the stability of colloidal dispersions. The higher the magnitude of the zeta potential (that is, highly positive OR highly negative), the more stable the colloid.
Ductility is defined as the
ability of a material to deform plastically before fracturing. Its measurement
is of interest to those conducting metal forming processes, to designers of
machines and structures, and to those responsible for assessing the quality of
a material as it is being produced.
