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

When a tensile load is applied to an elastic solid with an imperfect interface containing cracks or voids, the farfield displacement that would occur in the absence of the interface will be increased by localized deformations [1]. This extra extension can be modeled as the response of two half-spaces connected by a distributed spring. The spring stiffness per unit area, K, is a function of the topography of the partially contacting surfaces.
