Description

Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) plays a key role in assessing the condition of materials, components and structures comprising aeronautical systems. Formal design specifications developed in the Air Force Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) and Engine Structural Integrity Program (ENSIP) call for periodic inspections at defined levels of NDI flaw detection probabilities to avert failure or functional impairment. An essential link in establishing inspection intervals is the ability of the NDI system to find flaws. This paper describes the statistical aspects of the next Air Force evaluation program for NDI in airframe components.
