In the last decade, many exciting projects have used the lab for their research projects. We would like to present five of them to you on the occasion of our 10th anniversary.
The project "Application of Reverse Time Migration to Ultrasonic Echo Data in Nondestructive Testing" by Maria Grohmann and supported by the "Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM)", dealt with the non-destructive analysis of concrete structures. By implementing a geophysical imaging technique (RTM), the project team optimized the existing imaging possibilities. Limitations of the previous ultrasonic technology (SAFT) can thus be decimated. Initial experiments with bodies of polyamide or steel confirmed this thesis, but at the same time showed the still existing problems with the imaging of 3D structures. In a second step, a so-called "elastic 2D RTM code" was implemented as a solution that would emit "elastic waves" for the team's ultrasonic measurements. The computing power required to perform the elastic RTM is significantly high. Therefore, the team was given access to the appropriate computer hardware in the Future SOC Lab to obtain meaningful results within a reasonable period of time.
