Data fusion is a rapidly developing technology which involves the combination of information supplied by several NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) sensors to provide a more complete and understandable picture of structural integrity. This text is the first to be devoted exclusively to the concept of multisensor integration and data fusion applied to NDT. The advantages of this methodology are widely acknowledged and the author presents an excellent introduction to data fusion processes. Problems are approached progressively through detailed case studies, offering practical guidance for those wishing to develop and explore NDT data fusion further.

This book will prove invaluable to inspectors, students and researchers concerned with NDT signal processing measurements and testing. It shows the great value and major benefits which can be achieved by implementing multisensor data fusion, not only in NDT but also in any discipline where measurements and testing are key activities.


Postgraduates specialising in NDT - engineering and materials scientists. Researchers and practising scientists in the NDT field. Also of interest to signal processing technicians

"A very useful and interesting book containing many suggestions for data fusion which can form the basis of further study... contains very complete reference sections at the end of each chapter... I would certainly recommend this book to engineers and scientists interested in applying data fusion methods to NDT." --Insight
