Traditionally, welding and inspection of high-integrity joints are separate, sequential processes, reducing productivity and increasing rework if defects are only detected at completion. This fellowship seeks to introduce the volumetric imaging capability of ultrasonics directly into the welding process and aims to deliver high-integrity welds right first time, every time.
