Research in Nondestructive Evaluation

The flagship research journal of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing

Since 1989, Research in Nondestructive Evaluation (RNDE) has published peer-reviewed papers on novel experimental and theoretical investigations that advance state-of-the-art nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) methods such as acoustic and ultrasonic testing, electromagnetics, radiography, and thermography, as well as optical techniques. RNDE’s scope includes original research on NDE and SHM sensor/method development and verification studies as well as novel applications of NDE in various fields. The scope also includes the application of machine learning in NDE data analysis and interpretation.
