International Symposium on NDT Contribution to Infrastructures Safety Systems in the 21st Century, Torres, RS, Brazil, November 22-26, 1999
Nondestructive testing (NDT) and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods and equipment are indispensable for characterization of properties and monitoring quality and integrity of materials and structures. NDT methods combined with multi-disciplined engineering approach helps to make an expert decision about maintainability, rehabilitation, and fitness for service of infrastructure elements.
The symposium will serve to promote NDT and NDE possibilities to improve quality, safety, and durability of materials and structures as well as to explore new horizons of the industry. The emphasis will be made on education, science, technology and industrial applications of NDT and NDE innovative methods and means.
