Exploring advances and strengthening communications among researchers in manufacturing and construction technologies, this book covers nondestructive testing and evaluation methods. Drawing on a wide range of experts, it provides insights from every sector of the field. Based on a three-day conference titled "Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation for Manufacturing and Construction" held on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the papers presented in the book foster development of new and innovative methods.
