Digital radiography provides an effective means of non-destructively examining the effects of physical tests on the interior structure of a Radioactive Materials Packaging. As such it enables evaluation of the effects of the Hypothetical Accident Conditions Sequential Test on a package, following each step in the test sequence. An introduction to digital radiography is given and application of CCD-based, lens-coupled, large area-detector, digital radiography in the HAC testing of the prototype General Purpose Fissile Packaging is described. The radiographs enable correlation of damage with particular steps in the test sequence.
