The subject of this short course Common Nondestructive Testing_NDT – Part 1 is to show a basic resume with practical and comprehensive concepts of Visual Testing (VT), Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT) and Magnetic Particle Testing for students, technicians and engineers.
Our society relies very heavily on NDT technology to keep it as safe a place, as possible. A great deal of responsibility are in the hands of NDT technicians and engineers who keep our airplanes, trains, buses, trucks, tractors, automobiles and so on, operating safely; our pipelines and chemical plants from leaking; and our bridges from collapsing. Whatever involves minimum fabrication or large constructions there are nondestructive testings.
Therefore, NDT equipment and methods are constantly changing as engineers and scientists work to make the inspection technology better. NDT personnel are highly trained individuals who must continue to learn to stay abreast with changing technology.
A qualified technician or accredited engineer in NDT inspections should be always consulted to give satisfactory solutions according to the Standard codes.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
