Books vs Trees – What Do We Really Want?

Looking at a tree, you might have a difficult time visualizing how something so tall and strong could be turned into something as thin and weak as a sheet of paper. Different physical and chemical processes are involved to get the desired thickness of papers we use for our day to day activities.
Trees are very important to our ecosystem and environment as they beautify our surroundings, reduce pollution, lower energy costs, prevent erosion and increase the value of our lives and properties. One other very important use of trees is the production of paper. Worldwide, it is estimated that over 400 million metric tons of paper is produced annually.

Rapid Pipeline Inspections: Where Does GWUT Stand?

One of the longstanding problems facing the global oil & gas industry has been how to efficiently detect corrosion under insulation (CUI) in pipework. Over the years, a plethora of non-destructive testing (NDT) solutions have been developed to solve this problem with varying degrees of success. One technology that stands out however, is Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT).
Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing works by generating mechanical stress waves that propagate along an elongated structure while guided by its boundaries. The generated waves can travel a long distance with little loss in energy, thus making them efficient.
