Quantitative nondestructive evaluation (QNDE) is a highly interdisciplinary technology that involves the use of various techniques to detect both manufacturing and service related flaws in materials and structures which are important to safety in essentially all industries. The Annual Review is a week-long technical meeting in which both advances in fundamental knowledge and new engineering applications in several measurement technologies—ultrasonics, eddy currents,X-rays, thermosonics and thermography, among others—are reported and discussed. For more than four decades, the QNDE Conference has been identified as the world's leading research/engineering conference in this specialized engineering field.

Focus and Scope

We are accepting extended (3-page) abstracts for presentations accepted and presented at the 46th Annual Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation.
