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

The analytical treatment of the reflection of ultrasonic wave motion by a planar distribution of cracks is of interest for the nondestructive evaluation of imperfect diffusion bonds. Preliminary results for an experimental approach have been given by Hosten et al.1, for two bonded stainless steel cylinders. In practice, new high strength steel tubing has complicated the pinch welding process and placed emphasis on the integrity of the resulting weld, see Rehbein et al2, Thomas et al3. Two ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation techniques to find defects in the pinch weld and to determine weld strength have been discussed by Thomas et al.4.
