Barend van den BosStefan SahlénandJoakim AnderssonCSM Materialteknik AB, Linköping, Sweden
are the recipients of the Journal's Outstanding Paper Award for Excellence, for their paper
"Automatic scanning with multi-frequency eddy current on multi-layered structures"
which appeared in Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology, Vol. 75 No. 5, 2003
Barend van den Bos studied mechanical engineering at Linköping Institute of Technology, LiTH, specializing in materials science. After finishing his M Sc studies he became a PhD student the Department of Materials Science at LiTH. There he entered the world of NDT, he research project his on NDT of powder metallurgy produced parts. After finishing his thesis he has started working for CSM Materialteknik AB. Since 1996 I have been working on NDT there. Mainly he has been involved in development projects of various kind being. Initially, the technical focus was on electrical methods. Later, he has switched to optical methods, specially shearography. Since 2001 he has serves at level III in shearography and has run a number of development projects on that method.
Stefan Sahlén after finishing school in 1974, he worked for a few years in the pulp and paper industry, checking conditions on bearings. In 1977, he was employed at Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and after studying aeronautical engineering he worked as an air engineer until 1983 with SAS. Between 1983 and 1988 he was working with the five methods: UT, ET, PT, MT and RT as a level II NDT technician. In 1988, he was employed at Celsius Materialteknik AB. At that time it was the Swedish defence laboratory where the technical training in NDT was performed. Celsius Materialteknik merged in1995 with the materials technology lab of Saab to form CSM Materialteknik AB. Today he works an ET level III. He is responsible for their NDT courses. Other commissions are applications particularly, for air industry, nuclear industry and the Swedish Air Defence.
Joakim Andersson in 1989 was employed at Saab. There he worked for nine months in production as an NDT technician. He moved to the materials technology lab at Saab during 1989. There he remained until 1996, the first year as a level II technician in UT and RT and after 1992 at level III in UT. The materials technology laboratory of Saab merged with another lab to form CSM Materialteknik AB during 1995. In 1996 he went back to Saab, working as a technical writer for one year. Since 1997 he has worked for CSM, partly at level III in UT and partly as project leader for application, oriented development projects.
