Abstract
A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE DESIGN OF ENGINEERED SYSTEMS IS THE ABILITY TO PERFORM RELIABLE NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION ONTHE MANUFACTURED COMPONENTS. NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) OF PARTS AND ASSEMBLIES CAN BE SIMULATED FROM SOLID MODEL REPRESENTATIONS OF THE PARTS AND ASSEMBLIES. DESIGNERS MAY SIMULATE PART INSPECTIONS DURING DESIGN TO ASSURE THAT THE PART OR ASSEMBLY CONFIGURATION DOES NOT IMPEDE THE FUTURE INSPECTION OF CRITICAL ZONES. FURTHER, THIS CAPABILITY PROVIDES APRIORI INFORMATION TO THE INSPECTOR TO ASSIST IN THE TECHNIQUE SELECTION AND SIGNAL INTERPRETATION FROM COMPLEX OBJECTS. DEFECT SIMULATION AND ITS EFFECTS MAY ALSO BE PERFORMED. THIS INNOVATIVE APPROACHTO NDE WILL BE EXPLORED IN THE PROPOSED WORK EFFORT TO EVALUATE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF RADIOGRAPHIC AND ULTRASONIC NDE TECHNIQUES TO THE SOLID MODELING DESIGN SYSTEMS.
