ASNT… Creating a Safer World! ™

Research Council

The ASNT Research Council exists to promote NDE/NDT research and development through programs and activities that have measurable influence in the US and international community.

The Council’s vision is to serve as the organization that identifies emerging and advanced NDE research and development, provides a professional forum for communication, promotes NDE education and technology transfer among young professionals, researchers, engineers, inspectors and equipment manufacturers, and fosters professional growth.

The Research Council has five standing committees. These committees perform the work necessary for the council to achieve its goals.  The committees are:

  1. The RC Emerging Technologies & Technology Transfer Committee communicates with other ASNT councils, sister organizations and societies, academic and research institutions toward developing an agreeable plan in terms of the technology transfer for advancing NDE technologies.
  2. The RC Program Committee works closely with the ASNT International Service center to assist in putting together the ASNT Research Symposium program.  The committee also coordinates with other organizations, including the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation at Iowa State University, other sister organizations and societies, and other academic and research institutions to bring the most relevant content to the Symposium.
  3. The RC Publication Committee works closely with the Research in Nondestructive Evaluation Journal editorial committee on the content of the journal.
  4. The RC Mentoring Committee works with graduate and undergraduate students in the areas of NDE and NDT.
  5. The RC Membership and Outreach Committee is charges with growing, and encouraging participation in, the council.
