Comparison between Ultrasonic and Pulse-Radar Non-Destructive Testing Systems

  title={Comparison between Ultrasonic and Pulse-Radar Non-Destructive Testing Systems},
  author={Kouki Nagamune and Kazuhiko Taniguchi and Syoji Kobashi and Katsuya Kondo and Yutaka Hata},
-This paper describes comparison between our developed two Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) system with ultrasonic method and pulse-radar method. These systems could provide information of embedded objects in concrete structure. First, we introduce these NDT systems. The raw output images of these methods keep us from understanding them. To overcome this problem, we apply fuzzy logic into them. Next, we compare these two developed systems to show how to select appropriate method for various cases… 


An Impulse Radar Nondestructive Evaluation System
The goal is to combine the impulse radar system and inverse scattering imaging algorithms to provide an NDE system with high resolution imaging capability for civil structures.
Ultrasonic signal-processing techniques for the measurement of damage growth in structural materials
In recent years, the ultrasonic signal-processing technique, which has been enormously successful in material testing, has found few applications in the analysis of concrete damage because of the
Inherent Wave Estimation on Ultrasonic Non-destructive Testing Using Fuzzy Inference
The new method for suppressing the inherent wave of the sensor system is proposed, which estimates the wave using fuzzy-logic without the assumptions and was able to detect with higher accuracy than previous method.

A novel method to extract the buried pipes aided by fuzzy logic is proposed and it can find the signals of the pipes and can be extracted by fuzzy inference based on the signal value and voxel number.
A 3-D Image Detection Method of a Surface Opening Crack in Concrete Using Ultrasonic Transducer Arrays
The detection of the size and the location of existing three dimensional cracks in a concrete structure is an important topic in civil engineering. In this paper, a multisource, multireceiver method
Automated segmentation of human brain MR images aided by fuzzy information granulation and fuzzy inference
The proposed automated procedure for segmenting an magnetic resonance (MR) image of a human brain based on fuzzy logic can identify the whole brain, the left cerebral hemisphere, the right cerebral Hemisphere, the cerebellum and the brain stem with high accuracy and therefore can provide the three dimensional shapes of these regions.
Fuzzy sets and applications : selected papers
This book discusses the role of Fuzzy Logic in the Management of Uncertainty in Expert Systems, and the concept of a Linguistic Variable and its application to Approximate Reasoning.
Fuzzy Expert Systems
One of the imprecision types of information encountered in an expert system is due to the (natural) language used to express information. If knowledge is not expressed in some formal language, the
