Proceedings of a Workshop on Materials State Awareness Appendix A Materials State Awareness Workshop Statement of Task A workshop will be convened to consider scientific and technical issues pertinent to developing an understanding of materials, structural, and system-state awareness through nondestructive evaluation (NDE)-based sensing in military aerospace systems. The workshop's agenda will focus primarily on the materials science associated with the mechanisms of material damage state assessment and its correlation to the structural and lifetime condition of the system. The discussion will (1) cover a wide variety of material systems, computational techniques, and virtual NDE methods and (2) identify possible future directions for NDE research and development. The invited speakers will be asked to focus on the progress that industry, academia, and government laboratories have made in recent years so that the attendees might develop a vision for future material state awareness technologies for aerospace applications to indirect observations of material and damage states. This workshop will bring together government, industrial, and academic specialists with expertise surrounding the use and understanding of sensors as a tool for the nondestructive evaluation of the useful lifetime of materials within equipment. The workshop activity will result in a proceedings report that will not contain any conclusions or recommendations from the organizing panel.
