The objective of NDE is to detect and characterize internal or surface cracks and corrosion in structures that can result in failure of the structure. The test method ranges from a simple visual one to more complex sensors that involve some form of energy, such as electromagnetic, acoustic, thermal, radiographic, etc.

    Research activity in the NDEL is supported by the aerospace, nuclear power, defense, natural gas and biomedical industries, among others. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to conduct research across a broad spectrum of electromagnetic and ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation methodologies.
