Materials Evaluation


Materials Evaluation (ME) is ASNT's flagship journal with news and features covering all aspects of NDT and the NDT industry. The technical content in ME is peer-reviewed by qualified technicians and researchers, ensuring quality details and discussion. The journal’s history and archive reaches back to the earliest formative days of the Society.

Current Issue: January 2023 - Volume 81, Issue 1


The January 2023 Materials Evaluation is a special Technical Focus Issue on highway infrastructure inspection and evaluation, guest edited by Sreenivas Alampalli, PhD, P.E. This issue features five papers: the first discusses recent changes in NBIS in the direction of asset management and preservation focus. The following paper discusses modern underwater inspections that are increasingly reliant upon new technologies and nondestructive testing methods beyond VT (such as UT, MT, and sonar in conjunction with remotely operated vehicles).

The remaining technical papers provide an overview of new technologies for bridge inspection, including RGBD cameras, automation and robotics, and uncrewed ground-based systems and uncrewed water-based systems.
