Abstract
Now is the time to inroduce new quantitative NDT techniques, new evaluation procedures that use improved flaw sizing techniques and have linkage to fracture and/or fatigue mecahnics. These techniques have to be established by taking into accout risk-based consideraqtions and uncertainties in the NDT data due to some degree of statistical vagueness. In parallel with the demand for quantitative NDT is the appeal of more intelligent inspection systems (hard and software 'enablers'). In most cases, these systems assist the nondestructive testing personnel in perorming the inspection by using automated or semi-automated manipulation of the NDT sensors, which permits fast data acquisition (essential for reducing raiation dose) followed by accurate offline data evaluation (e.g., flaw sizing using enhanced image analysis and documentation). The development of these new quantitative and intelligent NDT systems has been greatly enhanced image analysis and documentation). The development of these new quantitative and intelligent NDT systems has been greatly enhanced by today's miniaturized hardware components and their implementation as plug-ingboards in standard high-speed personal computers (PCs). This contribution has allowed the development of newly available systems for ultrasonic and eddy current inspection.
