About the Presenter:
Terry Tamutus has his degree in Mechanical Engineering from NJIT (B.S. 1987); Terry joined Physical Acoustics Corporation in 1988. He is a Corporate Level II and Director at Physical Acoustics Corp. where he has been involved in Acoustic Emission and ultrasonic applications for the past 18 years. He has present at universities, US Government agencies such as DoD, FAA, NASA, FHwA and companies including Boeing, Lockheed, Power Generation and Refineries. He has authored several papers on Acoustic Emission. PAC has been working with FHwA, universities and DOT for bridge testing since 1972. This presentation will cover advances in Acoustic Emission and Ultrasonics.
About the Talk:
Acoustics Emission and Ultrasonics are two power techniques for inspection materials and structures. It is also used in process control applications in pharmaceutical and manufacturing. This presentation will discuss applications work with Boeing, NASA, Navair, Army, Offshore oil platforms, nuclear reactors, aircraft, concrete, steel, composites monitoring and testing. Other applications include granulation, axle straightening, transformer testing, leak detection corrosion detection, metallic and composite pressure vessels. This presentation will cover current and new sensor development in air-coupled ultrasonic applications, acoustic emission sensors and MEMS, wireless and remote sensing systems for data acquisition and several other applications. This presentation will not focus on a detailed application but give a broad overview of the non-destructive testing industry and sensors/data acquisition systems used.
