2nd Seminar NDT in Railway
26 September 2022 in Berlin, Germany


Non-destructive testing of railway components is one of the key technologies for reliable and sustainable operation of high density and high quality rail services.
Climate change is the major driving force for the increase in rail traffic in the next decades. The constantly increasing loadings, train speeds, traffic density and environmental conditions require adaptation of track design, rail and wheelset materials as well as new traction technologies and vehicle design using modern joining methods. Due to the higher demands there are changes in damage mechanisms and an emerge of novel defect types which have to be handled. This poses strong challenges for non-destructive testing of both the rolling stock and the infrastructure which have to be discussed.

With this seminar we will address the modern challenges in non-destructive testing in the railway sector and give an insight into new developments and applications. In addition, the interdisciplinary exchange between science and industry will enable extended networking among the participants. 

We will courteously invite you to Berlin or online to participate in an expert exchange of experiences. Our invitation is addressed to users and service providers from all areas of the railway industry sector as well as to experts from research and development.
This seminar will be held as hybrid event.

With lectures by NDT experts, we will put together a comprehensive programme which addresses the following main topics:

  • NDT on Rolling Stock
  • NDT on Tracks and Infrastructure
  • New Challenges, Digitalization
  • Standardisation of NDT in the railway sector 

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin.
