Paper Abstract

The decision was made in 1982 to introduce neutron radiography to complement other nondestructive inspection methods available for inspection of aircraft parts (Stationary Neutron Radiography System) and intact aircraft (Maneuverable Neutron Radiography System). Both the systems have now produced their initial results: aircraft show significant trends in the type of defects found (moisture is the most frequent finding); trends in the location of defect occurrence in specific parts (e.g., along leading edges of critical control surfaces); and trends between groups of aircraft (depending on whether they operate primarily in dry or damp environments).
