Description

The push for higher reliability of structures requires that components be adequately inspected for critical flaws. In this computer age, however, it is becoming ever easier to design and develop high performance components with little regard for their inspectability. Time worn inspection “rules of thumb” often are just not good enough to assure the inspectability of a structure which embodies a combination of new geometries and new materials. What is needed is an on-line, analytical tool for the designer which provides quantitative assessment of inspectability levels and predicts the sensitivity of inspectability measures to NDE (nondestructive evaluation) system and component design parameters
