Abstract : The purpose of this document is to provide testing and evaluation procedures for assessing Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) system capability. Using this, an NDE system can be demonstrated to meet specified requirements, and major sources of variation can be identified and measured. Included in this document is a methodology to establish a reliable, quantifiable probability based inspection system. The NDE procedures addressed herein are those used to inspect gas turbine engine components. They are applicable to airframes as well. They are, specifically, Eddy Current (EC), Fluorescent Penetrant (PT), Ultrasonic (UT), and Magnetic Particle (MT), Testing.
