NDT Method References
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.)
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.
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.
Intended for engineering students and practitioners with some experience. Contents: explanation of significant developments in data processing and storage techniques; basic elements of ultrasonic technology including wave propagation, equations, and transducer design; ultrasonic applications in both industry and medicine.
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.
