Abstract : Under the auspices of the AGARD Structures and Materials Panel R&D Cooperation Program, a round-robin NDI demonstration has been carried out. Six laboratories in four NATO countries participated in the project. The aim of the project was to determine the sensitivity and reliability of NDI procedures presently employed by the participating laboratories and to establish whether or not the procedures would be adequate for the implementation of a damage-tolerance based maintenance approach or whether improved methods are required.
