Nondestructive Testing (NDT)
The field of Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is a very broad, interdisciplinary field that plays a critical role in assuring that structural components and systems perform their function in a reliable and cost effective fashion. NDT technicians and engineers define and implement tests that locate and characterize material conditions and flaws that might otherwise cause planes to crash, reactors to fail, trains to derail, pipelines to burst, and a variety of less visible, but equally troubling events. These tests are performed in a manner that does not affect the future usefulness of the object or material.
The number of NDT methods that can be used to inspect components and make measurements is large and continues to grow.
- Visual Inspection (VT)
- Penetrant Testing (PT)
- Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)
- Surface Eddy Current Testing (ET)
- Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
- Positive Material Identification (PMI)
- Guided Wave (GW)
- Real Time Digital Radiography Testing (DRT)
- Shear Wave (UTSW)
- Phased Array (UTPA)
- CUI Inspection
- API 510
