This Month's Introduction

Table of Contents

In this month's issue we provide 13 Papers of NDT in Aerospace that were presented at the 8th European Conference on NDT.

So far we had published 30 Exhibitors' Papers and 19 Radiography Papers of the 8th ECNDT. We'll continue the 8th ECNDT review in forthcoming issues with approx. 40 more papers of many other NDT fields. We wish to thank Authors for their co-operation.

    Inspections of Columbia's Main Propulsion System (MPS)
    Due to the magnetic property of the stainless flow liners on Columbia, ultrasonic testing proved to be a more effective means than eddy current to determine if cracks were present. Using ultrasound, technicians identified three cracks on engine two liquid hydrogen flow liner. No further decisions are expected until teams are able to inspect Endeavour late this week.
