The December issue features two technical papers: in one, a comprehensive model is presented to evaluate hardness in low-alloy steels based on carbon content and ultrasonic wave velocity, and in the other, an experimental prototype is developed for the air-coupled ultrasonic testing of rails. A Back to Basics article explains the differences between rayleigh and surface acoustic waves. In Society news, read about the mutual recognition agreement between ASNT and JSNDI and check out  the wrap-up of the 2017 Annual Conference. The Product Spotlight focuses on equipment for guided wave testing.
