NDE Inspection

NDE & Inspection


Technical Expertise

EWI’s NDE group boasts industry-leading expertise in phased-array ultrasonics and array eddy current. We are currently expanding our capabilities into the areas of full matrix capture (FMC) and computed tomography (CT). As materials joining and forming techniques evolve, so does our ability to inspect both bulk materials and completed joints.

  • Inspection of arc, friction, ultrasonic and resistance welds
  • Inspection of ferrous, nonferrous, polymeric and ceramic materials
  • Inspection of additively manufactured materials
  • Rail inspection
  • Pipe inspection
  • Automated inspection systems
  • Laser-based ultrasonics for non-contact high speed inspection
  • Microwave-based NDE for nonmetallic materials
  • Ultrasonic, Eddy Current, X-Ray and CT mathematical modeling and simulation
  • Quantification of NDE performance through comprehensive probability-of-detection and sizing accuracy studies
  • 2D and 3D finite element analysis for eddy current NDE methods
  • Thermography
  • Radiography
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Advanced ultrasonic inspection including phased-array, full matrix capture with total focusing method, and time of flight diffraction techiques
