Summary on Grant Application Form
We propose to establish a Centre whose prime aim is to do world-class research in NDE and related fields. The initial academic membership of the centre comprises researchers from six universities and includes expertise in mechanical and electronic engineering, physics and materials, so recognising the interdisciplinary nature of NDE. The Centre will have an industrial membership scheme which will contribute to the resources available for the research programme. We anticipate a wide portfolio of activities from longer term, higher risk adventurous research, through medium term application research and development to short term practical projects and technology transfer activities with SMEs and other exploiters of new products. The EPSRC funds that are the subject of this proposal will support the longer term, adventurous research. The purpose of all the research, whether shorter or longer term, will be to benefit the nation in terms of quality of life, through improved safety, environmental protection and economic security. The Centre will do this by assisting UK companies to improve (a) their competitiveness and (b) their ability to meet the public's requirements for safe and secure operation.
