Practical pattern recognition workshop for Nondestructive testing-NDT

THE WORKSHOP
This workshop introduces the practical aspects of pattern recognition. Using the group`s ICEPAK as a framework, the workshop covers the theory and applications of statistical pattern recognition and neural networks. Pattern recognition methods help you discover the depth of your NDT data and improve the ability to discriminate among the sources of the signal such as types of defects and noise with a quantified assessment of the recognition rate. These tools extract much more information from the signals and images than the human inspector can and, therefore, make the NDT data much more valuable.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
* Any inspection practitioner who wants to take advantage of the full information content of the signals and images produced by nondestructive testing systems.
* Inspectors, Scientists and Engineers involved in actual inspection, in the design and application of signal and image interpretation systems and control systems for nondestructive testing
* Basic Researchers in the engineering, physical, education, environmental and military sciences who wish to apply advanced signal and image analysis and interpretation methods
* Test Engineers and Technicians looking for faster and more effective ways to develop automated testing and control systems.

Depending on the people in the workshop, the proportion of theory and practice is paced to the individual needs of each attendee. Workshop numbers are limited to permit the instructors to work with each attendee on problems of his or her own interest. Attendees will gain a sound basis for evaluating the potential of current pattern recognition technology for their applications as well as the ability to rapidly implement a. range of classifier technologies.

PREREQUISITE BACKGROUND
The workshop provides attendees with no background in pattern recognition with the necessary terminology and theoretical background. For the experienced users, the workshop goes beyond theory to focus on applications.

HANDS-ON
Bring your own data for use during the hands-on sessions. If you seek a fast and cost-effective way to design and implement classifiers for your signal and image interpretation applications, you'll find this three-day workshop worthwhile. Participants at previous workshops have developed and used a classifier on their own data in less than a few hours!

The workshop instructors have plenty of data to introduce attendees who are exploring the field for the first time.

WORKSHOP CONTENT
The workshop begins with an overview of the pattern recognition field and proceeds to introduce a theoretical background. A hands-on introduction session at the computer late in the first morning begins alternating applied and theoretical sessions.

WORKSHOP TOPICS

1. Overview of Artificial Intelligence
2. Terminology
3. Knowledge-Based Systems

Flexible forming for cheaper car parts

A system for producing a variety of vehicle components on one processing lone has been developed by a European research consortium. The EU-funded PROFORM project has built a flexible roll forming lone that incorporates laser ad electromagnetic forming systems. This enables vehicle sections to be created with curved, conical shapes, such as cross bars, bumpers, frames and side members. The concept is applicable for 20% of the body in white and is cost effective for small or medium production rates upto 100,000 parts a year, explains Maria Angeles Gutierrez of Spanish research organization Labein-Tecnalia, whioch coordinated the project.

Success tips for Successful NDT career



The success of any Nondestructive testing(NDT) methods and procedures depends upon the knowledge, skill, and experience of the NDT personnel involved in the profession. The person(s) responsible for detection, interpretation and Evaluation of indications, such as Ultrasonic testing, Radiographic testing, or Magnetic particle testing, must be qualified and certified to specific industry or other acceptable government or industry standards such as American Society for Non destructive Testing(ASNT) Personnel Qualification and Certification as per SNT-TC-1A or Indian Society for Nondestructive testing(ISNT) for different levels like Level I (1), II (2), III (3)or any other Internationally recognized personnel qualification training and certification. The person should be familiar with the respective NDT inspection test method/s, know the potential types of discontinuities peculiar to the material, and be familiar with their effect on the structural integrity of the part.

Inspection personnel should know where discontinuities occur or can be expected to exist and what effect they can have on the service life of the component or assembly. Misinterpretation and/or improper evaluation of discontinuities or improper performance of inspection tests can result in serviceable parts being rejected and defective parts being accepted. NDT personnel should be familiar with the detection of discontinuities such as: corrosion, inherent discontinuities, primary processing discontinuities, secondary processing or finishing, in-service discontinuities and codes, standards, specifications pertaining to the NDT.

It is with the interest in learning the skills and practicing, one can become a more professional NDT inspector/technician. More than just having the knowledge got in the training courses, it is important to learn the things with patience during NDT inspection and regularly practice the inspection/test methods to understand and develop the skills independently for a successful NDT career.
