This project aims to develop and apply a customized Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) system comprising two distinct NDT techniques, complementary and redundant, in order to allow the identification of all types of defect morphologies possible to occur in the laser brazed welds, improving the reliability inspection. The NDT techniques are: Alternating Current Potential Drop Measurement (ACPDM) and eddy currents (EC).
Partners: FCT-UNL, UNIDEMI, INESC-MN
Funding organization: Autoeuropa (PT)
Main achievements: An integrated and customized NDT system constituted by: probes, chassis and the electronics for signal generation and acquisition, system control and software.
