Committee E-7 on Nondestructive Testing has, since its inception, assumed responsibility for presenting advanced concepts of control and inspection testing to the membership of the Society, and through it to the general and specific industrial communities. In keeping with this responsibility, the present symposium was initiated for a two-fold purpose: (1) to establish a background of unclassified literature on a limited number of specific applications of nondestructive testing; (2) to stimulate thinking by outlining many of the present nondestructive testing problems in the missile industry. This new, but highly dynamic industry is beset with a multitude of problems involving the measurement of properties and evaluation of materials for extremely severe environmental conditions. Missile materials must withstand severe temperature, pressure, radiation corrosion, and stress levels to meet design performance. Consequently, nondestructive test methods must be able to furnish quantitative information to insure that the proper quality levels have been met.
