 Because of the need to demonstrate structural integrity, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of nuclear and pressurized components poses unique challenges. This conference, the second in a new series, will highlight all aspects of this important subject, including the links between structural integrity requirements and NDE performance. New developments in performance demonstration and qualification of NDE systems will be prominently featured. The development of improved NDE systems and methods will be highlighted as well. This conference will provide an up-to-date assessment of NDE development and will allow technical interchange between experts on an international basis.


 This conference will provide an opportunity for personnel involved in NDE to exchange information and experiences. This is an important industry event for NDE engineers and specialists, structural integrity analysts, and staff members who select inspection/evaluation services. Utility personnel, equipment manufacturers, service vendors, government and university personnel, and consultants are encouraged to attend and share current and emerging technologies for NDE.


 A vendor exhibition will be conducted to complement the technical paper presentations. A limited number of 8-foot by 10-foot (2.4 m x 3.1 m) exhibit booths is available for $2500 each, which includes one pass to the conference. Specialists in the field of NDE and field services are encouraged to display their equipment and/or capabilities.
