Abstract:

This report reviews and relates the procedures, variables and techniques for producing a quality radiograph to past and ongoing research aimed at improving the radiographic technique as a nondestructive evaluation method, with emphasis on composite material investigations. In particular, the report includes discussions of state-of-the-art techniques such as microradiography, stereoradiography, and neutron radiography. Fluoroscopy is discussed along with recent developments in filmless techniques of radiographic imaging, electronic image enhancement, and use of opaque additives and penetrants.
