Development of Transducers for NDE
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.
Several new types of transducers are described. These include 50 - 500 MHz transducers using thin film technology and indium techniques, transducer arrays for imaging, edge-bonded transducers, and unipolar transducers.
