The importance and the application of ultrasonic guided wave testing to different areas of manufacturing, inservice and nondestructive testing (NDT) were discussed. It was found that guided wave testing would become a common place with the advances in physics and mechanics. Guided wave testing would have greater penetration power, resolution and sensitivity with such advancements in physics and mechanics. Sophisticated mathematical modeling techniques would be expanded and become available to all and it was also found that smart structures and materials with embedded sensors are also being developed. It was also found that which mode and frequency had the chance of carrying out the discontinuity classification and sizing analysis.
