Why Stuff Falls Apart - Life Lessons of a Failure Analyst
Wednesday, March 15 2017 at 6:00pm

Dr. Mac Louthan is the mystical unicorn of materials engineers.  Not only has he had an incredibly interesting and successful career (including receiving many distinguished awards), but he is ALSO a renowned teacher known for his ability to connect with his students, AND he is one of the most entertaining and captivating lecturers you'll ever have the privilege to see.  He has the brains of an engineer, complimented by the personality and skills to spread his knowledge and wisdom.

Why Stuff Falls Apart is a humorous, motivational lecture that presents the six fundamental causes of failure.  This lecture demonstrates that the same causes that apply to engineering failures are also applicable to societal failures.  Dr. Louthan will discuss specific failure examples and show how these failures can be frequently related to poor ethical decisions driven by human greed, peer pressure and/or cost and schedule deadlines.

Introduction to Ultrasonic Inspection with Phased Array Probe Methods (PAUT *) and time of flight diffraction (TOFD **)
Thursday, October 19 2017 at 19h00
Members: Free
Members Dinner: $20 (Dinner is optional. 18H00)
Non-Members: $40
Non-Members Dinner: $60 (Dinner is optional. 18H00)
 
****For security reasons, pre-registration is required. NO attendees who are not pre-registered 5 days before will be able to participate. Please email events@cinde.ca with your full name , driver's license number (and issuing province), and passport number (and issuing country) for security clearance****
 
As a second activity in 2017, the CINDE chapter of Quebec is pleased to announce a conference on ultrasound. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the Quebec Welding Institute.
 
The presentation will cover two ultrasonic technologies for the inspection of welded structures: network probes (PAUT *) and diffraction (TOFD **).
These two techniques are very effective in detecting and characterizing defects and are also complementary.
 
The presentation will be divided into 5 stages:
1) Basic Principles of Ultrasonic Inspection and Data Representation
2) Introduction to Network Sensor Inspection
3) Introduction to Diffraction Inspection
4) Examples: Bridge over Orinoco (Venezuela) and Anti-flood gates lagoon of Venice
5) Training and certification available
 
The city of Québec is the world's center in the field of ultrasonic inspection instruments for industrial use. For more than 30 years, the technological center in CND (non-destructive testing) in Quebec City has been innovating by developing and marketing state-of-the-art ultrasonic technologies. During the 1990s, equipment using network sensor technology appeared with a retail price of about $ 250k, limiting access to high-end applications such as steam turbines and the nuclear sector.
 
Today, network probe technology has grown to the point where manufacturing costs have dropped dramatically. All manufacturers of portable ultrasound devices today offer instruments using network probes and this technique is being replaced with conventional ultrasound.
 
With the commercialization of portable devices, the use of network probes has spread in the welding sector. Inspection procedures have been refined and today inspection of welds with a network probe has become a very effective method of visualizing defects in the volume of the weld. In parallel with the development of inspection procedures, training programs and inspection standards have evolved to make the network probes technology available to technicians and engineers working in the CND and welding sectors.
