Abstract

The development of non-destructive testing methods currently involves an enormous range of checks, the diversification of techniques, extensive automation of data acquisition and computerization of the analysis and presentation of results, besides exploiting the potential offered by new technologies (remote data processing networks, optical disc memories, etc). A database in this field would clearly be of considerable interest. Setting up such a base at European level poses a number of specific problems, owing mainly to the type of data to be processed (e.g. images), the geographical distribution of data acquisition centres and users, the non-uniformity of the available hardware and software, and the confidentiality of certain bodies of data. It therefore seems appropriate initially to propose compiling a prototype database covering a limited sector, with a view to pinpointing optimum solutions susceptible of application in a wider context. X-ray photography would appear to be a suitable subject for a feasibility study of this kind.
