Ultrasonic graded wave inspection is expanding rapidly to many different areas of manufacturing and in service inspection. The purpose of this paper is to provide a vision of ultrasonic graded wave inspection potential as we move forward into the new millennium. An increased understanding of the basic physics and wave mechanics associated with guided wave inspection has led to the increase in practical nondestructive evaluation and inspection problems. Some fundamental concepts and a number of different applications that are currently being considered will be presented in the paper along with a brief description of the sensor and software technology that win make ultrasonic guided wave inspection common place in the next century.
