#Operator Training: Logistic Fitting Module for UltraTestLab – Data Analysis for Ultrasonic Testing

Webinar | Customers


The UltraTest company of Achim, Germany, is the market leader in ultrasonic testing for mineral-based building materials that undergo setting processes. For the company’s UltraTestLab control and evaluation software, WACKER and UltraTest developed an add-in module that enables more precise, more detailed data analysis.

Seminar objectives

The goal is to fit a differentiable function to sound speed measurement graphs as accurately as possible in just a few steps. The program module uses mathematical analysis (curve sketching) as a basis for automatically calculating the derivative (sound particle acceleration) of this function, as well as its characteristics. The user can then compare these data to the results of complementary analysis methods in order to correlate individual setting processes to sound particle accelerations occurring at different times.

Dr. Ingo Müller

Dr. Ingo Müller studied mineralology at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. After completing his degree, Müller spent twelve years working as a scientist for Hercules in Düsseldorf, where he studied the interactions of cellulose ethers with cement phases. He then pursued this subject for his Ph.D. from the University of Münster. He joined WACKER in 2008, where he was primarily engaged in cement analysis, cement chemistry and method development. His development work since 2017 has encompassed analysis methods for ultrasonic testing on building materials that undergo curing processes.
