||years passed since the first meeting of Acoustic Emission Working
Group (AEWG) was held in Idaho Falls, on February 8, 1968.
|AEWG had its beginning in a discussion between Allen T. Green (then at Aerojet-General Corp.,
now at Acoustic Technology Group) and Jack Spanner (then at Battelle Northwest).
Spanner arranged for a formative meeting of interested parties to be held in
Alcoa, TN, on November 2, 1967.
The 12 people in attendance agreed to hold the
first meeting in Idaho Falls in three months. At that time, eight others (T.
Theodore Anderson, Thomas F. Drouilliard, Robert B. Engle. Robert G. Liptai,
O.K. Mitchell, R. Neal Ord. Ronald E. Ringsmith and Richard K. Steele) joined to
become the charter members of the AEWG.
