ASNT’s 24th research symposium (spring conference) at the Hyatt Regency-Orange County in Anaheim, CA runs from March 16thru 19th. The ASNT Research Symposium is one of the finest events for the exchange of ground-breaking, trending, and interesting research in the field of nondestructive testing. The event also serves to identify emerging NDE technologies, provide a professional forum for communication, and promote NDE technology transfer among researchers, engineers, inspectors and equipment makers.
