Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

Long-life (10-30 years) large space structures are considered by NASA for a number of future earth-orbiting missions. The use of very thin graphite-fiber composites have been considered as structural materials for the fabrication of these structures. A combination of analytical and experimental approaches will be needed to provide a reliable data base on engineering properties of these materials to be used in the design and fabrication of these structures, which will be able to withstand the space environment.
