NDT Method References
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
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.
Learn how leak testing is performed according to ANSI and ASME specifications, the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and various other standards. Contents: 6 chapters and 2 self-check quizzes covering hydrostatic testing of piping systems and equipment, initial service leak testing and leak testing of field-erected tanks, casings, precipitators, scrubbers, duct work, and other equipment.
The scope of this standard indicates that these photographs were prepared to provide a way of “establishing types and characteristics of surface discontinuities detectable by the penetrant inspection methods.” Contents: two types and four classes of indications are shown and they may be used as references for acceptance standards, specifications, and drawings
