Paper Abstract

This paper provides an overview of a program established at Sandia National Laboratories by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to validate nondestructive inspection (NDI) processes for application to aging aircraft. The paper describes an NDI Validation Center, an evolving library of specimens with typical defects, a validation process, ongoing related field experimentation, and current and future work activities.
