Abstract:

The quantitative nondestructive evaluation QNDE of material aging parameters continues to be a very challenging problem. In our approach, we formulated a forward problem arising in specific micro guided wave test. A stochastic inversion technique based on the Metropolis-Hasting algorithm was applied to the problem. The feasibility and validity of the approach was demonstrated through computational experiments.
