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

Due to the increasing number of aging aircraft, the inspection and assessment of corrosion and fatigue damage on airframe structures is of major concern [1]. Among the different types of corrosion damage, pitting corrosion is an important factor in triggering widespread fatigue crack initiation and reduced fatigue life. Therefore, the ability to predict surface crack origination from pitting corrosion is necessary for timely maintenance of aging aircraft.
