1 What is the technology on which DEPA V9 is based? How is a basic test conducted?

The core technology behind DEPA V9 is based on the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM D and ASTM E) approved Non Destructive Testing (NDT) specification called the Impulse Excitation Technique (IET). IET has found wide acceptance in industry and research due to its extreme accuracy, cost effectiveness and high result repeatability.

The simplicity of properties testing with the DEPA V9 software is its biggest strength. The test sample is  supported appropriately based on the shape, placed over a sonic sensor and excited with a small tap. The sound emanated by the sample is then broken down by the DEPA software into its component frequencies. The fundamental frequency (F) intrinsic to the material and the damping curve is then analyzed along with the dimensions and mass to accurately reveal the material's characteristics.

The testing method can used to grade material properties for bulk inspection or for smaller stand-alone data sets.

4 What is JE DEPA V9?
Dynamic Elastic Properties Analyzer (DEPA) Version 9 (V9) is a highly advanced proprietary Non Destructive Testing (NDT) software solution. DEPA V9 is capable of accurately (1/10000th of a %) analyzing a wide array of materials that show a large range of variance in physical properties. The technology behind DEPA V9 is based on the analysis of the fundamental frequency of vibration, intrinsic to any solid body at the atomic level. With the test being low impact and non destructive, our customers also benefit with significant cost savings.

DEPA V9 accurately measures:

  • Young's Modulus (YM)
  • Shear Modulus (SM)
  • Poisson's Ratio (R)
  • Density
  • Fundamental Frequency (F)
  • Imprint of complete Frequency Signature
  • Sound Velocity within Material (both planes)
  • Damping Coefficient and complete Signal Damping Signature
  • Impact test Analysis
  • Temperature Variant Analysis
  • Mathematical Statistics
