GHASNT Spring Educational: MRUT & Advancements in EMAT

  • San Jacinto College Central Campus Spencer Highway Pasadena, TX USA (map)

Let's learn something!  Please join us for a course taught by Mr. Justin Ng of Innerspec Technologies, Inc., assisted by Mr. Eugene Lo of Innerspec Technologies, Inc. and facilitated by industry leading NDT instructor John Nyholt. 

Whether you are new to the technique or just want to brush up, we look forward to seeing you there.  


This course will introduce students to the fundamental theory of operation of Electro Magnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) based Medium Range UT (MRUT) and Long Range UT (LRUT), including basic bulk vs. guided wave modes, wave generation mechanisms, and differences between EMAT vs. conventional UT. Students will also be exposed to standard EMAT applications for NDT such as normal beam, angled beam, material property measurement, and Guided Wave Testing (GWT) using Lamb and Shear Horizontal Waves for Mechanical Integrity inspection of pipeline and tank corrosion. Finally, students will be given a brief overview of the latest EMAT technology available currently in the NDT market. The course will involve both lecture and hands-on practice.
