•TOC All

In this month's issue we provide Papers of the 8th ECNDT dealing with Civil Engineering, Mine Detection and Acoustic Emission Testing.

As a result of an increasing number of spam messages posted to the forum, we have now added spam protection to the forum program. In particular we now avoid the distribution of inappropriate emails to members email box. Members who want suitable email delivery can setup each forum board individually and be sure not to receive impertinent emails via the forum.

So far we have published 80 Papers of the 8th ECNDT. We will interrupt the 8th ECNDT series in our May issue by publishing some very interesting articles of individual authors. We will continue the review in forthcoming issues. We wish to thank Authors for their co-operation.
