NIST & PRCI Collaborate to Advance Industry

Thu, November 13, 2014

Commencing in November NIST and PRCI will utilize the TDC to state six weeks of testing opportunities to assist in advancing NIST standardized crack calibration sample project.

Having demonstrated an ability to manufacture repeatable and standardized crack flaws NIST has produced a new set of controlled crack test blocks. These are now being made available over a six week period in collaboration with the TDC to test ultrasonic examination technique and personnel performance.. Utilizing the TDC allows NIST to obtain more data sets in a given period of time. Success in this effort will provide the industry with standardized and replicated crack test blocks for ultrasonic calibration for the first time in industry.
