Computerized Ultrasonic Test Inspection Enhancement System for Aircraft Components

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.
Current ultrasonic inspection of aircraft components often employs standard immersion test techniques and equipment. This includes the use of an immersion test tank, C-scan recorder, flaw detector and bridge system. As a direct result of the increasing needs on the system, a program was initiated to increase the inspection rates and the quality of the inspection.
