Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

The Center for Nondestructive Evaluation at Iowa State has been involved in the use of nondestructive evaluation testing (NDT) technologies to: assess the integrity of a substance, material or structure; assess the criticality of any flaws, and to predict the object’s remaining serviceability. NDT technologies used include ultrasonics and acoustic emissions, electromagnetic technologies, computer tomography, thermal imaging, and others.

History
In October of 1985 the CNDE was approved by the State Board of Regents after it had received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) as an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center.

Abstract

We begin with the premise that, unfortunately, there exists a gap between the actual and perceived needs of industry for NDE, and the research and education in NDE at the university level. We would hope to help bridge this gap by appropriate communications between the two sectors, which is one of the reasons for these sessions today. Part of the information of importance to industry is what opportunities currently exist at the university level for educating engineers who will be prepared to make significant contributions to advances in NDE technology. Or, if such university programs do not now exist, what is being planned to introduce and develop such programs.
