On Order



This is the third volume of a series of proceedings including papers presented at the respective International Conferences entitled: "Emerging Technologies in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)" that have been held in Greece since 1995.

This volume contains papers presented at the third Conference on Emerging Technologies in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Conference, convened at Thessaloniki, Greece in 2003. Papers cover a range of subjects including:

* interdisciplinary efforts to gain maximum benefit from capabilities from other science and engineering fields
* integration of several methods to form multimode systems for improved reliability
* increased use of computer simulation to investigate the response of specific methods

This work also covers improvements, enhancements and new and innovative ideas in NDT and should be of interest to engineers, researchers, quality control managers, as well as teachers and graduate students in the field.
