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

Metal-matrix composites (MMCs) appear to be well suited for structural applications where high specific strength (strength-to-density ratio), high specific modulus (modulus-to- density ratio) and high-temperature material properties provide significant engineering and economic advantages. So far, relatively little work was conducted on nondestructive characterization of MMCs [1–5]. The main goal of this paper was to investigate the use of the nondestructive eddy current technique for the evaluation of the electrical conductivity behavior of silicon-carbide-particulate (SiCp) reinforced aluminum (Al) MMCs, and to develop theoretical models to predict the results.
