This Month's issue focuses on the International Workshop on Imaging NDE

2007 held in Kalpakkam India. Our content includes 19 presentations of total 46 talks which we received this time as viewgraphs. For your convenience we provided the presentations as slide show and as one big PDF file.

Bridge inspection comes into sharp focus after Minneapolis bridge collapse, which is one of the worst bridge collapses in US history. Aging bridges and infrastructure in general is a widespread problem all over the world and the risk of new tragedies rises. Is NDT sufficiently applied? Why frequent inspections of the bridge failed to prevent the worst collapse? One study by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) found that over 90% of fatigue cracks were missed with visual inspection. Are many other NDT techniques not applied because authorities want to save costs? We have some early information on the matter in this issue.
