Dr. -Ing. Mato Pavlović

born 1971, is a researcher with over 10 years of experience in the field of non-destructive testing, especially ultrasonic testing (UT), working at the BAM (Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung) - Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, in Berlin, Germany. His current research interests include the theoretical modeling and simulation, and reliability analysis of UT systems. His work concentrates on the investigation of UT systems for the automated inspection of high-speed train axles. Furthermore, he looks into the advanced phased-array UT system used for the inspection of canisters for the permanent storage of spent nuclear fuel. He also worked for German Society for Non-destructive Testing (DGZfP) - Education and Training Ltd. as an NDT reliability advisor, developing guidelines for the reliability evaluation of NDT systems. Prior to joining BAM, he worked as a research and development engineer at Soko Z.I. developing a flight simulator. Mato Pavlovic has a degree (Dipl.-Ing) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Zagreb, Croatia and a postgraduate degree (Dr.-Ing.) in Material Science from the University of Saarland, Germany.
