VAST provided a workshop on non-destructive evaluation techniques for quality control of conventional and additive manufacturing parts. The workshop was led by Dr. Tarazaga, Dr. Malladi and Mr. Albakri.
The class looked at conventional methods for NDE but mainly focused on impedance based techniques using piezoceramic stop provide the structural coupling.
The class also had a hands on portion in our lab where participants were asked to evaluate measurements and identify the parts that would fail a quality test.
