MICROPROCESSOR UTILIZATION IN ULTRASONIC NONDESTRUCTIVE INSPECTION SYSTEMS
The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the feasibility of using microprocessors in ultrasonic inspection. Benefits of employing a microprocessor are two-fold, the first with respect to the development of a small, compact and portable inspection device, and the second with respect to obtaining flaw data in digital format for use in structural mechanics computer programs for stress analysis.
