Part of the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation book series


The possibility of monitoring material properties during the early stages of processing is an area of growing interest which offers potential not only for improving quality but also productivity. Of particular interest is the monitoring of mechanical properties on-line either during intermediate stages of processing or prior to shipping[1, 2].
