NDT Method References
The MFL Compendium: Articles on Magnetic Flux Leakage is a compilation of technical articles on magnetic flux leakage (MFL) drawn from ASNT’s monthly journal Materials Evaluation. The content offers real-world and laboratory-tested insight into the field of MFL. Students will find this publication to be an invaluable tool toward building an understanding of MFL while the seasoned technician will find the guide to be a useful reference document. The Compendium is one of the references used in the development of the ASNT NDT Level III examination for magnetic flux leakage and it is also cited as a training reference in the 2011 edition of ANSI/ASNT American National Standard CP-105.
This publication is written for the NDT novice. It is intended to acquaint the reader with the fundamental nature of NDT. Contents: emphasis on the more common methods (ultrasonics, radiography, magnetic particle, penetrant testing, and eddy current), with a detailed overview of other testing techniques. The author covers the basic physical concepts of the testing techniques, how they are selected, who uses them, and how effective they are in practice.
This book provides an overview of the principles involved in automated ultrasonic testings of girth welds as well as presents some of the origins and many parameters that influence the results of these inspections. Olympus NDT, 2006
Pocket-sized plastic scale to aid radiographers in the correct size identification of indications in pipe welds with outside diameters greater than or equal to 60.33 mm (2-3/8 in.). Can be used in conjunction with API 1104.
This classic reference has been brought back by popular demand. Contents: the theory and practice of X-ray interpretation for industrial purposes, advantages and disadvantages of using X-ray, radiation and high voltage safety, and many radiographs.
This book provides a thorough examination of the basic theory and principles behind eddy current testing.Contents: electrical theory; electromagnetism; inductive reactance and impedance; eddy current test principles; coils, instruments and standards; and impedance-plane response.
A book written for welders, welding students, welding supervisors and welding instructors. A great introductory text for learning the basics of welding. Contents: glossary of welding terms and symbols; welding power sources; welding and cutting processes; weldability of metals; quality control and quality assurance; metrics and conversion tables; troubleshooting guide; properties, identification and classification of metals; and filler metal.selection guide.
Finance is not, in general, a part of the curriculum for scientists, engineers, and even nondestructive testing (NDT) specialists. Therefore, justifying proposals for new methods and equipment that may seemingly add a modicum of cost to the production process can be problematic. Financial Justification of Nondestructive Testing not only explains how 100% inspection by high-tech methods can save money for a manufacturing organization, but also outlines how to justify this cost to upper management.
A complete, up-to-date guide to the leading product testing standard Fully revised to cover the latest nondestructive testing (NDT) procedures, this practical resource reviews established and emerging methods for examining materials without destroying them or altering their structure. Handbook of Nondestructive Evaluation, Second Edition offers in-depth details on the background, benefits, limitations, and applications of each method. The book provides advice on how to interpret results and formulate accurate decisions based on your findings. New chapters on digital radiography, ultrasonic phased array testing, and ultrasonic guided wave inspection are included. This is a must-have reference for NDT certification candidates, engineers, metallurgists, quality control specialists, and anyone involved in product design, manufacture, or maintenance. Handbook of Nondestructive Evaluation, Second Edition covers: •Introduction to nondestructive testing •Discontinuities—origins and classification •Visual testing •Penetrant testing •Magnetic particle testing •Radiographic testing •Ultrasonic testing •Eddy current testing •Thermal infrared testing •Acoustic emission testing •Digital radiography •Ultrasonic phased array testing •Ultrasonic guided wave inspection
This compendium is a compilation of technical articles on the guided wave test method published in ASNT's Materials Evaluation and The NDT Technician newsletter from 1996 through 2014. It was compiled at the request of the Guided Wave Testing Committee of the ASNT Technical and Education Council in order to provide reference material for the development of the GW body of knowledge included in ANSI/ASNT CP-105 (2016). This compendium is also one of the references used in the development of the ASNT NDT Level III examination for GW. The research and findings contained in this compilation offer real-world and laboratory-tested insight into the field of GW and can be useful to a diverse readership. For students, this is an invaluable tool toward a greater understanding and overall knowledge of GW. For the seasoned technician, the compendium serves as a reference that documents past and present articles on the method.
