Call 3 - Novel Non-destructive Examination


The Royal Navy wishes to identify a novel NDE solution to examine and ascertain the structural integrity of a welded joint through a variety of rubberised based compounds/coatings.  
The solution / technique is required to be able to:
• Scan through the rubberised medium with no detrimental effects to it.
• Apply an acceptance standard to the flaws identified through this rubberised medium.
• Accurately measure the material thickness of the metal substructure looking for surface corrosion/wastage.
• Be sensitive enough to identify both surface and subsurface volumetric flaws in the welded substructure.

If your company has the relevant experience, skills and technologies which could be utilised by the Royal Navy and Babcock in the defence sector for this call, please register your interest today.
