NDT Method References
A book devoted to the central principle of infrared/thermal testing — heat transfer. Understanding this principle is vital in order to learn how infrared/thermal testing can be used to perform systems and materials NDT. Contents: conduction, convection, boiling and condensation, heat exchangers, radiation diffusion and mass transfer. Comes with Finite Element Heat Transfer (FEHT) program w/ printed user's guide—A new software program that solves 2D and transient conduction problems. KEYWORDS: INFRARED; THERMAL.
Useful to those requiring an understanding of metallurgy. Contents: 11 articles first published in the British Journal for Non-Destructive Testing.
This compendium is a compilation of technical articles on GPR published in ASNT's Materials Evaluation, Research in Nondestructive Evaluation, and The NDT Technician newsletter from 1999 through 2015. It was compiled at the request of the Ground Penetrating Radar Committee of the ASNT Technical and Education Council in order to provide reference material for the development of the GPR body of knowledge included in ANSI/ASNT CP-105 (2016). The research and findings contained herein offer real-world and laboratory tested insight into the field of GPR and can be useful to a diverse readership. For students, this guide is an invaluable tool toward a greater understanding and overall knowledge of GPR. For the seasoned technician, the compendium serves as a reference that documents articles on the method.
Includes instruction workbook and two video tapes. Total time of tapes: 2 hours, 7 minutes. In this video/workbook training program, technicians are introduced to the basics of radiographic testing, image quality indicators, the effects of energy levels on radiographs, film density, scatter radiation and diffraction. Other topics discussed: film manufacturing process, film structure, problems with fogging and artifacts, and viewing room organization and tools. Sales of this item are final. No return is permitted.

This book provides a resource for understanding existing ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code requirements and contains information about and clarification of sections of the Code that have been updated recently. This book is a useful guide for designers and manufacturers of pressure vessels and provides guidelines for those who order materials and for those who inspect the final product. Contents: thickness requirement tables for internal pressure of cylindrical shells and torispherical and ellipsoidal heads and thickness charts for external pressure of cylindrical shells.
A valuable reference for test engineers, system analysts, design engineers, specification writers, and program managers in the infrared field. Contents: IR imaging system operation, basic concepts in IR technology, general measuring techniques, focus and system resolution, system responsivity, system noise, contrast, modulation, and phase transfer functions, geometric transfer function, image quality interpretation. KEYWORDS: INFRARED; THERMAL.
This handbook provides guidelines and techniques for ultrasonic sizing of planar flaws which originate at the inside diameter (ID) or the outside diameter (OD) of the component. These sizing techniques are applicable to depth sizing of mechanical and thermal fatigue, stress corrosion cracking or other planar type flaws. Contents: wave physics for sizing methods, ID creeping wave method calibration, tip diffraction method calibration, bi-modal method calibration, refracted longitudinal wave method calibration and advanced ultrasonic flaw sizing procedure.
This pocket-sized booklet is intended as a guide for RT personnel. Contents: 14 sections on subjects such as frequently used formulas, trigonometry, geometry, definitions, exposure factors, equivalence factors, penetrameter selection tables, and formula examples. (Also, 10 pages of detailed solutions are included.)
