Wind power is a promising source of environmentally safe and renewable energy with a high potential. However, in order to fully exploit energy of wind power the construction elements of the wind turbine should be inspected periodically. Wind turbine blades are complicated objects for inspection because they have an arbitrary curved surface, are(More)
In some nuclear reactors or accelerator-driven systems (ADS) the core is intended to be cooled by means of a heavy liquid metal, for example, lead-bismuth (Pb/Bi) eutectic alloy. For safety and licensing reasons, an imaging method of the interior of ADS, based on application of ultrasonic waves, has thus to be developed. This paper is devoted to description(More)
Wind turbine blades are complicated objects for inspection because they have a curved surface, are multi-layered, have variable thickness and are made from anisotropic materials. Ultrasonic contact pulse-echo immersion testing with moving water container has been selected for inspection of wind turbine blades, because this type of the inspection can be(More)
The problems of the development of high-temperature radiation resistant ultrasonic sensors operating in a liquid lead-bismuth alloy are analysed. Experimental diffusion bonded bismuth titanate sensors for operation up to 450 °C were developed. For acoustical coupling with a liquid metal the sensor protector is polished or coated by a diamond like carbon(More)
The inspection of a storage tank floor is a time consuming and expensive procedure, mainly due to necessity to empty and to clean the tank before an inspection. For this purpose a long range ultrasonic technique based on Lamb waves may be applied. Such an approach is used for inspection of pipes and can cover the distances up 100m. However the storage tanks(More)
In new type nuclear reactors, the core is cooled by means of liquid metal. The use of heavy liquid metal for reactor devices under development possesses problems with the required inspection and maintenance due to the opaque nature of the medium. In contrast to water-cooled reactors there are no any other means except ultrasonic, which would enable to(More)
A novel ultrasonic measurement technique for density measurements of different liquids in extreme conditions has been developed. The proposed density measurement method is based on transformation of the acoustic impedance of the measured liquid. The higher accuracy of measurements is achieved by means of the λ/4 acoustic matching layer between the load and(More)
In order to perform monitoring of the polymerisation process, it is necessary to measure viscosity. However, in the case of non-Newtonian highly viscous fluids, viscosity starts to be dependent on the vibration or rotation frequency of the sensing element. Also, the sensing element must possess a sufficient mechanical strength. Some of these problems may be(More)
For navigation of semi-autonomous robots various machine based vision systems are used. Ultrasonic systems are one of the cheapest, but some limitations reduce their performance. This paper is devoted to improvement of a data acquisition speed and noise robustness of such systems. These goals were achieved using simultaneous data acquisition along a few(More)
