SHORT COURSE A: Monday, November 18, 9:00 am: NDE 4.0: Ideas, Basics, Technologies, Applications and How to Implement - with Emphasis on UT and RT Techniques, Johannes Vrana, VRANA GmbH

This course will help the audience see the benefits of the new technologies due to the industry 4.0 developments. Those technologies are developed by a huge community outside of the NDE world, but they have a huge impact on it. Participants will get a basic understanding of Industry 4.0 and how to use this to shape the future of NDE which will improve NDE's customer satisfaction. See more

SHORT COURSE B: Monday, November 18, 1:00 pm: NDT Fixture Design Additive Manufacturing, Robert Woodward, CABVI

This course will cover the electronic design of NDT fixtures using free 3D modeling software. It will cover basic plans and instructions for printing and modifying 3D models and is for anyone interested in building their own in-house prototypes. See more

SHORT COURSE C: Tuesday, November 19, 1:00 pm: Automating Data and Processes, Jesse Groom

This class is designed for people who either manage others or are involved with reporting/ record keeping using various software such as Excel and Access. The intent is to show what can be done, how to find resources, and inspire others to develop their own solutions.  See more

SHORT COURSE D: Wednesday, November 20, 1:00 pm: Benefits and Capabilities of Neutron Radiographic Testing, Joshua McCumber, Phoenix LLC

Neutron radiography is a NDT technique that has been under-utilized due to cost and lack of access to neutron radiographic facilities. Individuals interested or involved in radiographic testing who may be unaware of the complimentary information that can be gained by using neutron radiography will benefit from this short course.  See more

SHORT COURSE E: Thursday, November 21, 9am: Introduction to Digital Radiography, George Hodges

This is an introductory course for anyone interested in learning the basics of Digital Radiography.  The differences in Digital and Film Radiography will be discussed, but knowledge of film inspection is not a requirement to benefit from this course.  Technicians, Engineers, Managers, Procurement Officers, or anyone interested in DR theory, the basic principles and capabilities of Digital X-ray systems, and general industry requirements will benefit from this course.

About the Speaker

With a rock star's presence, a storyteller's gift and a PhD in engineering physics, award-winning rocket scientist, Adam Steltzner is simultaneously recognized as one of NASA’s most brilliant engineers and most unique individuals.

For 10 years, Steltzner led a team of engineers inventing, designing, testing and retesting the revolutionary “sky crane” landing system that successfully placed the Mars rover, Curiosity on the Martian surface in 2012. Five times heavier than its predecessors, Curiosity required an entirely new landing system for the perilous 7-minute phase when the one-ton rover—entering Martian atmosphere at 13,000 mph—must stop fully on the surface. Since then, he’s been awarded honors ranging from the Smithsonian’s American Ingenuity Award in technology, to GQ magazine’s Spaceman of the Year.

With a unique, exciting and inspiring narrative, Steltzner discusses the power of human curiosity, the importance of fostering a culture of collaborative innovation and proves that with the Right Kind of Crazy, we can significantly expand boundaries and achieve the impossible.

Unauthorized Housing Warning

Unfortunately, it is now common practice for unauthorized companies to claim to be official housing providers for trade shows and other large events, including ASNT conferences. Usually called “room poachers,” these companies target exhibitors and attendees with aggressive emails or phone calls claiming to offer supposed discounts on hotel rooms or incorrectly stating that room blocks are nearing or at capacity. The room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Please be vigilant if contacted by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for ASNT. ASNT IS NOT affiliated with third-party travel agents, wholesalers or other outside agencies claiming to offer hotel reservations. The only way to book your rooms for ASNT is to use the channels provided on our website. If you are contacted by one of these pirate companies, please notify ASNT staff immediately. Below are company names that have been provided to us by our members, attendees and exhibitors. This list is not complete and new company names will be added as we are made aware of them.

  • Corporate Booking Services – CBS International
  • Global EXPO LIST
  • Global Housing Services, Corp.
