Senior Project - DEWEY


Graphical Interface for an Adaptive Ultrasonic Imaging System

Senior Project: 1993-1994
Brian Ball, Chris Jansen, Randal Pope and Joshua Weinberg
Materials Reliability Division
Boulder, CO

An ultrasonic system, based on reflection seismology, has been developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology for imaging defects in thick composite materials. A number of high-power, wide directivity point sources broadcast a sound field into the material to be inspected. Scattering and reflections from internal structures, which return to the surface, are sampled by a large number of point receivers. The receiving array signals are processed to produce cross-sectional images of the material. The purpose of this project was to develop a graphical user interface for controlling the imaging system hardware and for display of raw data and the reconstructed image. It was developed on a PC using LabView, an environment for developing user interfaces to and software control of laboratory equipment.
