Quantitative Failure Prediction: Are All the Wickets Converted?
Is Version Of
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.
Panel Members: Nancy Mann from Rockwell International Science Center (an expert in statistics, especially extreme value statistics), Ed Lenoe from Army Mechanics and Materials Research Center (with expertise in reliability and ceramic turbine development), Tom Derkacs of TRW (he's been using ultrasonics to detect defects in ceramics), Roy Rice from the Naval Research lab (an expert on fracture initiating defects in ceramics), Norm Tallan from the Air Force Materials Laboratory (with a major interest in ceramics for structural applications), and John Schuldies from Aresearch (the NDE expert at Aresearch with a lot of experience using current NDE techniques).
