ATS (Acoustic Transmission Spectroscopy) a new NDT Technology, Collaborators and/or Investors Sought.  

 Dr Barnes Homepage


I have developed a new acoustic NDT technology which should be appropriate especially in the polymer composites and polymer timber composites areas. I have working prototype systems in my office and can evaluate small samples if people are interested. I believe my system may diversely adapt to other types of bulk material analysis /NDT/QC etc. Such as perhaps as diverse as carbon fibre systems to road cores.


Unlike ultrasound a moving scan is not required with ATS. Library images can be used as look ups for QC inspection. Using the two modes of ATS both surface and bulk material defects can be detected.

A UK patent has been filed.
