Title: Nondestructive Testing Research and Development Efforts at Argonne National Laboratory—An Overview

Abstract

The Nuclear Engineering (NE) Division of Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has been involved for many years with research and development efforts associated with the nondestructive testing/evaluation (NDT/NDE) of critical components and structures in power generation (nuclear and fossil plants), aerospace, defense, homeland security, medical, and scientific applications. A wide range of NDT methods including electromagnetic, thermal, radiographic, acoustic and ultrasonic methods have been used for a wide range of material evaluation applications. Argonne’s expertise in analytical and numerical modeling of thermal, acoustic and electromagnetic interaction with complex media as well as advanced signal processing and data analysis have been utilized extensively for NDT applications. Three active areas of research, all in connection with NDT of materials and systems utilized in nuclear energy applications, are discussed in detail in this paper.
