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

Changes in aircraft design concepts in recent years from “Safe-Life / Fail-Safe” to “Damage-Tolerance” have significantly increased the importance of the role of Nondestructive Inspections (NDI) and have placed a far greater importance on the effectiveness of NDI techniques and their ability to detect defects. To calculate inspection reliabilities based on probability of detection (POD) of the inspection method and “Multiple Site Damage” (MSD) (or “Widespread Fatigue Damage”) assumptions for the defects, an approach to use a “Monte-Carlo Simulation” is described and results for crack inspection of aircraft lap joints are presented.
