Laboratory of Non-Destructive Testing

Department:   Department D 4 - Impact and Waves in Solids
Head:   Ing. Zdeněk Převorovský, CSc.

Mission: Research, development, and application of new methods of nondestructive testing (NDT) and evaluation (NDE) of materials and structures.

Our methods are based on elastic wave propagation in solids: Acoustic Emission, Ultrasonc Scanning and Tomography, Nonlinear Elastic Wave Spectroscopy (NEWS) including Time-Reversal Acoustics and Nonlinear Wave Modulation (NWMS).

Our research is basically experimental, supported by numerical simulations, advanced signal processing, design of artificial intelligence algorithms (artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, etc) for signal and pattern recognition.

Our resultsare applied in aerospace industry (aircrafts), nuclear power plants, chemical and petrol-gas industry, civil engineering (concrete structures), and others.

Our biomechanical research is oriented to biomechanics of human skin - mechanical and ultrasonic testing for medicine and cosmetics.
