The 17th International Workshop on “Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation" was held from July 29th to 1st August jointly organized by UFRJ and ABENDI at Windsor Atlantica Hotel. Participants were 81 from France, Italy, Korea, UK, USA, Germany, Poland, Colombia, Argentina, Slovak Republic, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, India, Japan and Brazil. We had 33 oral presentations and 48 posters.
Since the first ENDE workshop was held in London 1995, the workshops have contributed the technical advance in ECT through our competition and collaboration. ECT is put to practical use in industry now as one of the approved methods of crack detection in steels and metallic structure.
The next ENDE meeting will be held in Bratislav, Slovac Republic, under the auspices of University of Zilina.
