Nondestructive Evaluation

At the forefront of research efforts to develop in-service flaw detection techniques for forecasting lifetimes under varied service conditions, scientists in this program are working with government and industry to meet world needs for reliability in manufacturing materials and structures. Research initiatives include the development of the Magnescope, a device that measures a material's magnetic properties to assess damage and potential for failure from destructive mechanisms such as fatigue and corrosion. Funding was provided by Iowa State University's Center for Nondestructive Evaluation.
