Abstract

The goal of nondestructive testing may be simply expressed as the detection and complete specification (size, shape, orientation, and so on) of flaws. This is seldom possible, however. The most dangerous flaw is one that is crack-like or that serves as a crack initiation site. A procedure to detect and estimate fatigue damage occurring at such a site is reported. Fatigue damage was sensed with 92 percent success after 10 percent of specimen life.
