De La Salle University-Manila, Philippines – Professor Soichi Hirose of Tokyo Institute of Technology specializing in the numerical scattering of elastic waves, simulation of wave propagation and ultrasonic signal processing, delivered a lecture on Non-Destructive Testing of Reinforced Concrete last March 10, 2014, Monday, at Yuchengco Seminar Hall (Y508). Currently, Prof. Hirose he is the President of the Japanese Society for Non-Destructive Inspection (JSNDI). He presented various methods on non-destructive testing, especially on reinforced concrete structures. On his lecture, he discussed the development of the 2-D and 3-D time-domain Boundary Element Method for air-coupled utrasound testing, furthermore, he also presented the conduction of 2-D and 3-D simulation for air-coupled ultrasound testing using Rayleigh waves. He recommended to design an experiment that will incorporate the results of the numerical simulations and to develop a numerical method for inverse analysis.
Prof. Hirose is supporting the research initiatives of Engr. Ongpeng and the Department on NDT of concrete structures. Undergraduate thesis on NDT were also presented to get feedback from Prof. Hirose.
