The term special methods has generally been applied to any of several nondestructive testing methods that provide information about a material’s mechanical behavior: how a material (component or system) bends, becomes warm, exhibits stress and strain and, in the case of metal identification, how one chemistry differs from others. Contents: Grid and Moiré NDT, Tap Testing, Acoustoultrasonics, Holography, Shearography, Thermal and Infrared NDT, Metal Identification, Laser Ultrasonics, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Vibration Analysis, Potential Drop/Resistivity, Strain Gaging, Other Special Methods.
This set is a must have for any comprehensive NDT library. The NDT Handbooks are the premier publications for the industry, covering both theory and application of the various methods. Illustration and tables enhance every volume. (Third editions are Vol. 1–10).
This volume covers the latest standards on nondestructive testing of engineering materials, structures, and assemblies to detect flaws and characterize materials properties. Subjects include radiology, magnetic particle and liquid penetrant examination, acoustic emission, ultrasonic, electromagnetic and leak testing. Other headings in this volume include infrared methods, nondestructive testing agencies, and metals sorting and identification.
This book is Volume 17 in the 9th edition of the Metals Handbook. An easily understood, valuable reference to modern methods of NDE and statistical analysis. Contents: inspection equipment and techniques, methods of NDE, NDI of specific products, quantitative NDE, and statistical methods; more than 200 recognized authorities contributed to development of this volume.
his volume of the ASM Handbook series marks the first separate Handbook on an important engineering topic of long-standing and continuing interest for both materials and mechanical engineers at many levels. Contents: Fatigue Mechanisms, Fatigue Strength Prediction and Analysis, Fracture Mechanics, Damage Tolerance, Fatigue and Fracture Resistance of Ferrous and Nonferrous Alloys and Fatigue and Fracture of Composites, Ceramics and Glasses.
Qualified Nondestructive Testing (NDT) personnel regularly demonstrate their abilities to carry out their responsibilities with accuracy and efficiency. It is not at all uncommon for the NDT professional to be faced with new challenges. This handbook is intended to serve as a useful tool in such situations. The reference data are provided here in tables, charts, graphs and equations that will help the NDT professional to develop a promising approach and to carry out a test that is likely to produce reliable results.
