7/21/17 – Vibrant Corporation was a major presence at this year’s Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) conference held in Provo, Utah. Vibrant engineers gave two presentations and figured prominently in a third. These presentations stemmed from a project sponsored by two Air Force Research Laboratory contracts with Vibrant for the development of PCRT modeling tools and techniques. Vibrant is collaborating with Dr. John Aldrin at Computational tools and graduate student Brent Goodlet at the University of California Santa Barbara. All three of the team’s presentations will be accompanied by papers to be published next year in AIP Conference Proceedings.
7/1/17 – The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) has published an article by Vibrant entitled “Process Compensated Resonance Testing Models for Quantification of Creep Damage in Single Crystal Nickel-based Superalloys.” The article was published in the July 2017 issue of its Materials Evaluation journal. The article features some of the recent progress Vibrant has made in modeling the effects of damage states on resonance and how those models can be used to quantify damage in real parts.
