Paper Abstract

The infrastructure in the United States and the world is aging. There is an increasing awareness o the need to assess the severity of the damage occurring to our infrastructure. Limited resources preclude the replacement of all structures that need repairs or have exceeded their lifetimes. Methods to assess the amount and severity of damage are crucial to implementing a systematic, cost effective approach to repair and/or replace the damaged structures. The challenges of inspecting aging structures without impairing their usefulness rely on a variety of technologies and techniques for nondestructive evaluation. This paper will briefly describe several nondestructive evaluation technologies that re required for inspecting a variety of systems and structures.
