MechSE assistant professors Kathryn Matlack and Chenhui Shao presented a webinar as part of the 2020 Reman Day Festival.

Their presentation was titled “Quantitative Non-Destructive Evaluation of Fatigue Damage Based on Multi-Sensor Fusion.”  Watch the webinar on the REMADE Institute website.

“This webinar presented our recent DOE REMADE-funded research on a multi-sensor NDE approach to better predict fatigue damage, in order to inform how much useful life remains of potentially recyclable components,” Matlack said. “Listeners learned about state of the art NDE methods such as acoustic emissions, infrared imaging, and linear and nonlinear ultrasonics, and machine learning models, and how we are integrating these to enable remanufacturing of metals.  

“It was exciting to be a part of and contribute to the World Remanufacturing Day and connect with many industry professionals.” 

This project was a collaboration between Matlack, Shao, and Jingjing Li from Penn State University.

About the REMADE Institute
In partnership with industry, academia and national labs, the REMADE Institute will enable early stage applied research and development of technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing.
