Non-Destructive Inspection Training – Feb. 17 and 18, 2011

February 1, 2011

Please join Red River College for a Two Day Training Session on Neubrex NBX-6040 usage with Dr. Kishida on February 17&18, 2011.
Neubrex NBX-6040 – This instrument uses Brillion-based technology, including fiber optic sensors, to enable non-destructive structural health evaluation. It is the world’s only temperature/strain sensing system, implementing breakthrough Pulse-PrePump BOTDA technology.
This equipment can be used in a variety of applications, including civil engineering, pipeline monitoring, aerospace, fiber module development, and fiber optic gyroscope development.
The Neubrex equipment can utilize embedded fibres in composites materials for quality control during manufacturing for part process development, as well as detecting changes in strain distribution before and after part usage.
Neubrex analysis software allows one not only to obtain information on deformation or/and temperature fields in the areas inaccessible to optical fibre, but also to analyze phenomena which cannot be directly measured (E.g. pipe thinning).
See for more information on the NBX-6040.
Dr. Kishida is the founder, CEO and President of Neubrex Co. Ltd. Japan. He received his B.S. and M. Eng. degrees from the University of Science and Technology of China, in 1985 and 1988 respectively. In 1997, he obtained a PhD from Osaka University, Japan, and joined the Advanced Research and Development Institute of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
Dr. Kishida is an expert on shock waves in condensed materials and dynamic brittle fracture. His recent research interests are in optical fiber sensing, resulting in many patents and publications.
This is a complimentary Two Day Training Session that will be held in the CARSI building (Centre for Applied Research in Sustainable Infrastructure) on the Red River College Notre Dame Ave. Campus.
Thursday, February17th 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – – All day BASIC training session
Friday, February 18th 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. – – ADVANCED training
Lunch and refreshments provided both days.
