    Abstract

    The rationale and present technical content for the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) program in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) is presented. Needs for improved NDE measurement reliability and accuracy, needs that led to the establishment of this new program, are discussed. The present technical program is described. It includes work related to acoustic-ultrasonic, radiography, visual, electrical eddy current, microwave, penetrant and thermal testing, and wear debris analysis. The program content is summarized in two tables. Outputs from this program are indicated; these include standards and methods of measurement, calibration services, and standard reference materials.
