Materials and Processes
Materials and Processes for NDT Technology (second edition) provides a comprehensive reference for personnel involved in designing, using, or evaluating nondestructive testing (NDT) of products and structures. Coverage includes most phases of manufacturing and the materials used. Updated information is provided on industrial materials (Section I), including polymers, composites, nano-engineered materials, industrial foams and gels, and metallic glasses, in addition to more common metals and alloys. New color photos are evident throughout, including the latest in industrial machines and technology (Section II). A brand-new on NDT technology and applications (Section III) provides an extensive overview of 16 methods, including commonly used ones such as ultrasonic testing (UT), electromagnetic testing (ET), and radiographic testing (RT). Other methods include guided wave (GW), magnetic flux leakage (MFL), infrared/thermal testing (IR), leak testing (LT), vibration analysis (VA), as well as microwave testing (MW) and spectroscopy.
