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 proportion of composite parts used in new Air Force aircraft is increasing significantly with each airplane that is designed [1]. In addition, composite parts are also being used for critical applications, where the loss of the part could cause the loss of the plane. These parts are susceptible to delaminations, disbonds, and impact damage. As part of its mission to overhaul aircraft, the Sacramento Air Logistics Center needs to be able to efficiently validate the integrity of composite aircraft parts.
