Date and Time: 10:00 a.m. (CET) / 6:00 p.m. (JST), on Thursday, March 4, 2021
Under the new initiative between the EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk and SHIGA, this is the first webinar to introduce cutting-edge technologies derived from Japanese academia to potential licensees in Europe.
“Ultrasonic Imaging Technology for Road Pavement Using Low-Frequency Array Probes” was developed by Professor, Kazuyuki, NAKAHATA, Ph.D., Structural Engineering Laboratory of Ehime University. With the aim of reducing time and cost of non-destructive inspection for roads and improving preciseness of inspection, this invention allows users to detect a tiny flaw/defects inside the pavements without having to drill the structures. Conventionally, in the civil engineering industry, inspection of a structure is sometimes challenging because the components consist of inhomogeneous materials and have huge dimensions. Here, by applying the FASP technique (full-waveform sampling and processing), this invention has helped evaluate cracks non-destructively inside of structures at an early stage. It is greatly expected that this invention will be put into practical application in a broad range of technical fields, ranging from road inspection, social infrastructure, and industrial plants to geophysical exploration.
