Investigate Fundamentals and Performance Improvements of Current In-Line Inspection Technologies for Mechanical Damage Detection

This project will be an evaluation of existing in-line inspection tools for detecting, discriminating, and characterizing mechanical damage. The main benefit is to help industry manage the threat of delayed mechanical damage and document the relative value of existing technology versus additional technology, such as the proposed dual field technique, in characterizing mechanical damage and discriminating defects from benign anomalies.
