    Progetto: Research project

    Dettagli progetto


    In an effort to improve rail track inspection the ptoject proposes a non-contact ultrasonic system for periodic in-field inspections of trail tracks that has recognized advantges over conventional technologies currently available to the railroad industry. In particular, the system, consisting of o pulsed laser and an air coupled transducer, has the following advantages:- flexibility to discover cracks;- non-contact and remote inspection;- inspection speed higher than with contact methods.
