Recent advances in virtually all areas of industrial Computed Tomography (CT) now allow faster, higher resolution, and increasingly economic CT inspection of turbine blades than ever before. CT is now used for a wide range of Non Destructive Testing and Evaluation (NDT&E) applications including first article inspection, defect detection, internal measurement, wear (and failure) analysis, and reverse engineering. Improvements range from the introduction of international standards on CT, through improvements in acquisition, reconstruction, and data extraction. Some of the most significant advances have been made in the ability to process the data generated by the CT systems. Today, CT is an increasingly practical method for the Non Destructive Testing and Evaluation of turbine blades.
