Fundamental Engineering Studies of Magnetic Particle Inspection and Impact on Standards and Industrial Practice

This project will identify the most relevant factors in magnetic particle inspection for which existing engineering data is insufficient, assess the parameter ranges that proved acceptable performance for typical aircraft and engine components, and document the results of these studies for use in revision of industry specifications. Also, to complete an assessment of existing process control/monitoring tools and province needed improvements. In the meantime, develop/validate magnetic particle inspection (MPI) guidance materials for use by the airlines and original equipment manufacturers (OEMS) that incorporate "lessons learned" in this program and incorporate other recently developed data and information.
