These Proceedings, consisting of Parts A and B, contain the edited versions of most of the papers presented at the annual Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation held at the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Snowbird, Utah on July 19-24. The Review was organized by the Center for NDE at Iowa State University, in cooperation with the Ames Laboratory of the USDOE, the American Society of Nondestructive Testing, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the National Science Foundation IndustrylUniversity Cooperative Research Centers. This year's Review of Progress in QNDE was attended by approximately 410 participants from the US and many foreign countries who presented a total of approximately 370 papers. As usual, the meeting was divided into 36 sessions with four sessions running concurrently. The Review covered all phases of NDE research and development from fundamental investigations to engineering applications and inspection systems, and methods of inspection science from acoustics to x-rays. The Review continues to benefit from increased participation from foreign laboratories. This year the Review also welcomed members from the newly formed World Federation of NDE Centers and appreciate their participating in the program.
