Abstract : The design and performance of continuous scan type flaw detection systems are presented for use in the detailed examination of solid propellant missile motors. Factors affecting performance are discussed individually and related in a system equation. An experimental system, using two scintillation detectors in a differential configuration, is described and tests performed using isotopic and X-ray sources are reviewed. The predicted performance and the experimental results obtained are compared. (Author)
