Description

The Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE) at Iowa State University and in conjunction with Northwestern University is involved in continued development of an integrated system that assesses the inspectability and reliability of manufactured parts from a description of their geometry, materials, expected loads, and performance requirements. The main objective of this program, Integrated Design, NDE, and the Manufacturing Sciences, is to combine a variety of rapidly emerging disciplines associated with structural integrity with established techniques of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). The contributing disciplines include quantitative nondestructive evaluation, statistical modeling for quality assurance, process control, fracture mechanics and materials engineering, numerical methods for stress/fracture analysis, life cycle reliability and cost modeling, and computer and expert system (AI) networking. This results in a new engineering methodology that will allow life cycle integrity (as defined by reliability, maintainability, and life cycle costs) to be explicitly considered as a part of the synthesis of new designs for critical components and systems, thereby providing a realistic framework for design optimization.
