Nuclear Techniques for Product Inspection and Quality Assurance 720174
The increasing emphasis on automotive safety and reliability through product assurance has further stimulated the development of new and improved inspection methods. Nuclear techniques are finding ever-increasing application in this area, and have been used successfully in a variety of automotive inspection problems. Some of the unique methods which have been developed are presented to demonstrate the versatility of nuclear techniques when unusual inspection problems arise. Applications described include: measurement of oil consumption of production engines, monitoring composition of continuously cast bearing material, detection of internal voids in plastic-foam parts, and measurement of the moisture content of foundry sand.
