Magnetic Particle Inspection of Fixed Offshore Structures: Inspector/Diver Training

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.

Ultrasonic Waves in Solid Media

Ultrasonic wave techniques, used increasingly in areas ranging from nondestructive inspection of materials to medical diagnosis, evolved from basic physical principles of wave mechanics. This profusely illustrated text brings together basic physics and modern applications. Joseph Rose explains the physical principles of wave propagation and then relates them to ultrasonic wave mechanics and the more recent guided wave techniques used to inspect and evaluate aircraft, power plants, and pipelines in chemical processing plants. He stresses mechanics, mathematics, and modeling throughout the book, establishing the framework for practical applications. The text is complemented by 344 illustrations, laboratory experiments, and 272 exercises.
