    Abstract

    The background, advantages, and limitations of conventional X-ray or gamma-ray radiography in the acceptance inspection of electro-explosive components is examined. The development and application of neutron radiography proceeds and demonstrates the unique contribution of this technique toward higher product reliability when used as an “in-line” product acceptance tool.
