IPRT’s Center for Nondestructive Evaluation is remembering Dr. R. Bruce Thompson with a symposium. Thompson, who passed away March 7, 2011, was CNDE director, a Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Iowa State, and member of the National Academy of Engineering. “As we approach the one-year mark of learning of Bruce’s cancer, it is fitting that we remember the many contributions that he made to the science and practice of nondestructive evaluation and to Iowa State University,” says Lisa Brasche, CNDE associate director.
