NDT Method References
A Level I/Level II book that teaches the basics of eddy current testing. Nine chapters with over 90 illustrations and quizzes at the end of each chapter. Contents: electric fundamentals, alternating current, electricity and magnetism, AC mathematics, basic eddy current theory, coils and instruments, nonferromagnetic conducting materials, crack detection, thickness variations, metallic cladding, delamination, ferromagnetic materials, multiple frequency testing.
Pocket-sized plastic scale to aid radiographers in the correct size identification of internal gas porosity and rounded indications in welds. Can be used in conjunction with the ASME codes dealing with rounded indications characteristics.
This book provides an in-depth look into foundry operations and how NDT is used to test foundry products. The author focuses on the application of magnetic particle testing, penetrant testing, radiographic testing and ultrasonic testing on castings of different metallurgical composition. Contents: the structure of metals; solid solutions and alloying; metallurgical elements of cast steel, cast iron, cast aluminum alloys; casting design; essential components of a NDT department; specifications; quality control; magnetic materials; X-ray diffraction; identification and classification of cast steels; designation of cast aluminum, aluminum alloys and their tempers; RTR systems; porosity and shrinkage in cast aluminum alloys.
A reference manual for those already involved in eddy current testing. Worked examples after each chapter help the reader to understand complicated test results. Contents: eddy current fundamentals, electrical circuits and probe impedance, instrumentation, testing with surface probes, testing of tubes and cylindrical components, metallurgical properties and testing of ferromagnetic materials.
This pocket-sized booklet is intended as a guide for ET personnel. Contents: 11 sections on subjects such as frequently used formulas, resistivity and conductivity tables, frequency/penetration chart, trigonometric and geometric tables, English/metric conversion table, Fahrenheit/Celsius table, and sample problems.
A practical text intended for operators and inspectors who do not need all of the technical data contained in other publications. Contents: basic penetrant process requirements, systems and materials, application and removal, types of developers, inspection equipment, and personnel requirements.
Thermal Imaging systems are particularly useful for evaluating the condition of power lines, transformers, circuit breakers, and motors. This profusely illustrated book provides the underlying physics of why and how objects emit radiation. Since this radiation is related to temperature, it is relatively to determine an object’s temperature. By using both simple and complex math, this book is intended for all that work with thermal imaging systems. This includes the researcher, system designer, test engineer, salesman, and end user. Since civilian and military applications are discussed, this book is useful to both communities.
repared by the Publications and Technical Committee of the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing, this booklet helps NDT students understand and use the formulae employed in NDT. Contents: units, basic mathematical processes, basic formulae in radiology, ultrasonics, magnetic particle and eddy current testing.
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
Not only is this book an excellent reference for those who perform underwater magnetic particle tests, it explains inspection techniques that can be performed in dry environments as well. An excellent source for information about weld fabrication and in-service weld inspection. Contents: basic concepts of MT inspection; discontinuities; field strength and distribution; application and removal of magnetic particles; test sensitivity verifications; field indicators; lift strength; discharge machine notches. Over 50 photographs (40 in color) of equipment and indications in an underwater environment.
