Description

New computer-assisted ultrasonic inspection techniques are occurring on both small PC-based and larger minicomputer/workstation-based systems. The bigger systems can address large-scale inspection problems through the acquisition of multigigabytes of data and the use of sophisticated analysis and visualization techniques [1,2]. With these benefits, however, come greater bulk, complexity, and cost. Smaller systems excel in applications requiring man portability. Optimally a combination of the two technologies would provide the sophisticated analysis techniques of the large systems with the smaller size and lower cost PC. The EDAS Model 100 ultrasonic inspection system, described in this paper, achieves this synthesis.

Application of Large-Scale Analysis Techniques to a Man-Portable Limited-Scope Environment
