Materials Evaluation (M.E.) is ASNT's flagship journal with news and features covering all aspects of NDT and the NDT industry. The technical content in M.E. is peer-reviewed by qualified technicians and researchers, ensuring quality details and discussion. The journal’s history and archive reaches back to the earliest formative days of the Society.
Current Issue: April 2021 - Volume 79, Issue 4
The April issue of Materials Evaluation takes a deep dive into acoustic emission testing (AE) with two technical papers on the topic. In the first, a Fellowship Paper, the authors take a look at characterizing acoustic emission sources in complex aerospace panels using a real-world section of a Boeing 777. In the second, AE is used to monitor the elastoplastic fracture toughness of high-strength, low-alloy steels in two different directions.
In Back to Basics, the basics and innovations of eddy current testing are explained. The issue also includes a preview of ASNT’s spring and summer conferences.
