- London, 21 February 2017 -
Guided Waves is the special feature topic in this month's issue of Insight*, the official journal of the British Institute of Non-destructive Testing (BINDT).Included in this special feature is the research paper "Crack growth monitoring using low-frequency guided waves"** which was co-authored by Chien A Chua, one of the PhD students sponsored by GUL at Imperial College.We are proud to say that our latest gPIMS® corrosion monitoring system and advanced WaveProTM software was utilised in monitoring the growth of a defect in a weld under experimental conditions at the Pipeline Research Council International's facility in Houston, Texas.
* Launched in April 1994, Insight is published monthly and is circulated worldwide to more than 65 countries around the world.
