Emerging Technologies in Non-Destructive Testing VI Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Non-Destructive Testing (Brussels, Belgium, 27-29 May 2015)

    Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is of worldwide significance, and is strongly related to the detection of damage in engineering structures (buildings, bridges, aircrafts, ships, pressure vessels, etc.) using non-invasive techniques (ultrasound, X-rays, Radar, neutrons, thermography, vibrations, acoustic emission, etc.). Emerging Technologies in Non-Destructive Testing VI includes the contributions to the 6th International Conference in Non-Destructive Testing (Brussels, Belgium, 27-29 May 2015). The book intends to give the latest updates in the field of NDT, and is organized in chapters on high impact subjects, such as:

    - Applications of NDT methods related to cultural heritage structures;
    - Materials like ceramics, polymer and composites;
    - Railways;
    - Glass panels;
    - Steel structures;
    - Wind turbines, and
    - Aerospace structures.
    Other subjects include the monitoring of 3D-printed components, self-healing mechanisms in concrete, and applications of NDT in biological materials.

    Emerging Technologies in Non-Destructive Testing VI provides insight in the latest developments in the different techniques with a huge social impact. In addition, it facilitates the exchange of ideas among scientists and the industry, disseminating academic knowledge to society – and the other way around: giving feedback from the experience of practitioners to academia.
