Abstract

Advanced manufacturing and new energy systems are presenting a wide variety of challenges for nondestructive testing and evaluation (NDT/NDE). This paper discusses the state of the art, needs and opportunities for NDE to provide reliable, effective and economic inspection and monitoring for energy systems. It introduces issues of materials, defects and allowables, the evolution of advanced NDT and NDE and then considers examples of NDE for energy systems. These include applications in the petrochemical industry, advanced and additive manufacturing, solar cells, wind turbines, nuclear systems and some underlying issues of large scale composites, pipes and concrete.
