Service Detail from RNDT, Inc.
When a solid material is stressed, imperfections within the material may emit short bursts of energy called "emissions" or "events". In much the same manner as ultrasonic testing, special receivers (sensors) can detect these acoustic emissions. The source of "emissions" can be evaluated through the study of their strength, frequency, dispersion, and location.
At RNDT, several conventional and modal AE systems, with the most advanced hardware and software available, provide our acoustic emission Level II and III technicians the tools to offer many production, in-service, and research related examinations. We can handle a variety of specialized AE examinations in both lab and field settings.
