Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In safety critical and non-routine situations, inspection capability may need to be demonstrated by an independent process of Inspection Qualification (IQ). This process is costly and time consuming. Therefore an approach that could aid in its production would be beneficial. This paper describes the development of interactive software tools empowering the NDT engineer to design and evaluate the capability of an ultrasonic inspection within a single environment. This paper discusses the motivation for the system, the design and implementation of the tools and the benefits it will provide.
