Use of elastic and electromagnetic wave/material interactions for dimensional analysis, material property determination, and flaw detection. Liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, radiography, ultrasonics, and eddy current testing are applied to engineering materials testing, including metals and composites. Elements of Fracture Mechanics and critical flaw size is discussed in context of the NDE techniques. Emphasis is placed on comparing NDE techniques based on Probability of Detection, or POD.
