NDT Method References
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.
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 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.
Useful to those requiring an understanding of metallurgy. Contents: 11 articles first published in the British Journal for Non-Destructive Testing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
