Ongoing research work at Serco Assurance and at Imperial College is addressing the modelling of NDT processes, for improving the characterisation of flaws and for monitoring of material degradation.  This is a broad area of work, involving the disciplines of NDT, materials modelling and structural integrity, and it aims to connect from the inspection through to the decisions on acceptability levels, determined for example by fracture mechanics assessments.  The EngD project will provide support to this research field through a variety of studies.
