AUTOMATED NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING TECHNIQUES FOR THE COMPUTERISED INSPECTION ON WHEELS IN MOTION
A system for the examination of the structural integrity of wheels in motion using both ultrasonic Rayleigh surface waves and sonic excitation is presented. Certain technical aspects of this project have reached an advanced state of development elsewhere. The emphasis in this paper is on the overall automation and computerization and the statistical interpretation of the results, which are being developed in Australia.
