Description

Non Destructive Examination (NDE) plays an important role in numerous industrial fields. They are used both in production tests (improvement of product quality, process monitoring) and in facility inspections (installation safety, component life times). Various types of inspections are widely used: radiography, ultrasonics, eddy currents, etc. The choice of an inspection technique is made on the basis of different criteria: type of material to be tested, type of defects sought, detection or characterization, inspection time and cost. In some cases, either to compare the capabilities of different techniques, or to use complementary inspection methods, the same components are examined with different procedures. In these cases, it is very useful to have a single evaluation tool allowing direct comparison of the methods. This tool is indispensable for directly convoluting signals from two inspection methods.
