Non-destructive testing methods ensure that materials, products, machinery and systems are safe and fit for purpose. The practical application of radiological, acoustic, electromagnetic, optical, thermographic and sensor-based methods, the development of new methods, the improvement and combination of existing methods, and supporting the development of standards and technical guidelines in this framework — these are the key activities of the Non-Destructive Testing department.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION AND TESTING
Nondestructive testing NDT is a wide group of analysis techniques used in science and technology industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. The six most frequently used NDT methods are eddy-current , magnetic-particle , liquid penetrant , radiographic , ultrasonic , and visual testing. NDT methods rely upon use of electromagnetic radiation , sound and other signal conversions to examine a wide variety of articles metallic and non-metallic, food-product, artifacts and antiquities, infrastructure for integrity, composition, or condition with no alteration of the article undergoing examination.
Visual inspection VT , the most commonly applied NDT method, is quite often enhanced by the use of magnification, borescopes, cameras, or other optical arrangements for direct or remote viewing.
The internal structure of a sample can be examined for a volumetric inspection with penetrating radiation RT , such as X-rays , neutrons or gamma radiation. Sound waves are utilized in the case of ultrasonic testing UT , another volumetric NDT method — the mechanical signal sound being reflected by conditions in the test article and evaluated for amplitude and distance from the search unit transducer.
Another commonly used NDT method used on ferrous materials involves the application of fine iron particles either suspended in liquid or dry powder — fluorescent or colored that are applied to a part while it is magnetized, either continually or residually.
The particles will be attracted to leakage fields of magnetism on or in the test object, and form indications particle collection on the object's surface, which are evaluated visually. Contrast and probability of detection for a visual examination by the unaided eye is often enhanced by using liquids to penetrate the test article surface, allowing for visualization of flaws or other surface conditions. This method liquid penetrant testing PT involves using dyes, fluorescent or colored typically red , suspended in fluids and is used for non-magnetic materials, usually metals.
Analyzing and documenting a nondestructive failure mode can also be accomplished using a high-speed camera recording continuously movie-loop until the failure is detected. Detecting the failure can be accomplished using a sound detector or stress gauge which produces a signal to trigger the high-speed camera.
These high-speed cameras have advanced recording modes to capture some non-destructive failures. The captured images can be played back in slow motion showing precisely what happened before, during and after the nondestructive event, image by image.
NDT is used in a variety of settings that covers a wide range of industrial activity, with new NDT methods and applications, being continuously developed. Nondestructive testing methods are routinely applied in industries where a failure of a component would cause significant hazard or economic loss, such as in transportation, pressure vessels, building structures, piping, and hoisting equipment.
In manufacturing, welds are commonly used to join two or more metal parts. Because these connections may encounter loads and fatigue during product lifetime , there is a chance that they may fail if not created to proper specification.
For example, the base metal must reach a certain temperature during the welding process, must cool at a specific rate, and must be welded with compatible materials or the joint may not be strong enough to hold the parts together, or cracks may form in the weld causing it to fail.
The typical welding defects lack of fusion of the weld to the base metal, cracks or porosity inside the weld, and variations in weld density could cause a structure to break or a pipeline to rupture.
Welds may be tested using NDT techniques such as industrial radiography or industrial CT scanning using X-rays or gamma rays , ultrasonic testing , liquid penetrant testing , magnetic particle inspection or via eddy current. In a proper weld, these tests would indicate a lack of cracks in the radiograph, show clear passage of sound through the weld and back, or indicate a clear surface without penetrant captured in cracks. Welding techniques may also be actively monitored with acoustic emission techniques before production to design the best set of parameters to use to properly join two materials.
This verifies the weld as correct to procedure prior to nondestructive evaluation and metallurgy tests. Structure can be complex systems that undergo different loads during their lifetime, e.
Lithium-ion batteries. Engineers will commonly model these structures as coupled second-order systems, approximating dynamic structure components with springs , masses , and dampers. The resulting sets of differential equations are then used to derive a transfer function that models the behavior of the system.
In NDT, the structure undergoes a dynamic input, such as the tap of a hammer or a controlled impulse. Key properties, such as displacement or acceleration at different points of the structure, are measured as the corresponding output.
This output is recorded and compared to the corresponding output given by the transfer function and the known input. Differences may indicate an inappropriate model which may alert engineers to unpredicted instabilities or performance outside of tolerances , failed components, or an inadequate control system. Reference standards, which are structures that intentionally flawed in order to be compared with components intended for use in the field, are often used in NDT.
Several NDT methods are related to clinical procedures, such as radiography, ultrasonic testing, and visual testing.
Technological improvements or upgrades in these NDT methods have migrated over from medical equipment advances, including digital radiography DR , phased array ultrasonic testing PAUT , and endoscopy borescope or assisted visual inspection.

This International Standard specifies requirements for principles for the qualification and certification of personnel who perform industrial non-destructive testing NDT. The system specified in this International Standard can also apply to other NDT methods or to new techniques within an established NDT method, provided a comprehensive scheme of certification exists and the method or technique is covered by International, regional or national standards or the new NDT method or technique has been demonstrated to be effective to the satisfaction of the certification body.
The certification covers proficiency in one or more of the following methods: a acoustic emission testing; b eddy current testing; c infrared thermographic testing; d leak testing hydraulic pressure tests excluded ; e magnetic testing; f penetrant testing; g radiographic testing; h strain gauge testing; i ultrasonic testing; j visual testing direct unaided visual tests and visual tests carried out during the application of another NDT method are excluded. NDT is divided into various methods of nondestructive testing, each based on a particular scientific principle.
These methods may be further subdivided into various techniques. The various methods and techniques, due to their particular natures, may lend themselves especially well to certain applications and be of little or no value at all in other applications. Therefore, choosing the right method and technique is an important part of the performance of NDT. Successful and consistent application of nondestructive testing techniques depends heavily on personnel training, experience and integrity.
Personnel involved in application of industrial NDT methods and interpretation of results should be certified, and in some industrial sectors certification is enforced by law or by the applied codes and standards. NDT professionals and managers who seek to further their growth, knowledge and experience to remain competitive in the rapidly advancing technology field of nondestructive testing should consider joining NDTMA, a member organization of NDT Managers and Executives who work to provide a forum for the open exchange of managerial, technical and regulatory information critical to the successful management of NDT personnel and activities.
Their annual conference at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas is a popular for its informative and relevant programming and exhibition space. There are two approaches in personnel certification: . In the United States employer based schemes are the norm, however central certification schemes exist as well.
Central certification is more widely used in the European Union, where certifications are issued by accredited bodies independent organizations conforming to ISO and accredited by a national accreditation authority like UKAS. Canada also implements an ISO central certification scheme, which is administered by Natural Resources Canada , a government department.
The aerospace sector worldwide sticks to employer based schemes. The roles and responsibilities of personnel in each level are generally as follows there are slight differences or variations between different codes and standards :  . Probability of detection POD tests are a standard way to evaluate a nondestructive testing technique in a given set of circumstances, for example "What is the POD of lack of fusion flaws in pipe welds using manual ultrasonic testing?
A common error in POD tests is to assume that the percentage of flaws detected is the POD, whereas the percentage of flaws detected is merely the first step in the analysis. Since the number of flaws tested is necessarily a limited number non-infinite , statistical methods must be used to determine the POD for all possible defects, beyond the limited number tested.
Another common error in POD tests is to define the statistical sampling units test items as flaws, whereas a true sampling unit is an item that may or may not contain a flaw.

The non-destructive evaluation of civil engineering structures in reinforced concrete is becoming an increasingly important issue in this field of engineering. This book proposes innovative ways to deal with this problem, through the characterization of concrete durability indicators by the use of non-destructive techniques. It presents the description of the various non-destructive techniques and their combination for the evaluation of indicators. The processing of data issued from the combination of NDE methods is also illustrated through examples of data fusion methods. The identification of conversion models linking observables, obtained from non-destructive measurements, to concrete durability indicators, as well as the consideration of different sources of variability in the assessment process, are also described.

Non-destructive testing NDT is a testing and analysis technique used by industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component, structure or system for characteristic differences or welding defects and discontinuities without causing damage to the original part. This is a passive NDT technique, which relies on detecting the short bursts of ultrasound emitted by active cracks under a load. Sensors dispersed over the surface the structure detect the AE. It is even possible to detect AE from plasticisation in highly stressed areas before a crack forms. Frequently a method for use during proof tests of a pressure vessel, AE testing is also a continuous Structural Health Monitoring SHM method, for example on bridges. Leaks and active corrosion are detectable AE sources too.
Просто позор. - Могу я для вас что-нибудь сделать. Клушар задумался, польщенный оказанным вниманием. - Если честно… - Он вытянул шею и подвигал головой влево и вправо. - Мне не помешала бы еще одна подушка, если вас это не затруднит. - Нисколько. - Беккер взял подушку с соседней койки и помог Клушару устроиться поудобнее.
Через несколько минут включат свет, все двери распахнутся, и в шифровалку ворвется полицейская команда особого назначения. - Мне больно! - задыхаясь, крикнула Сьюзан. Она судорожно ловила ртом воздух, извиваясь в руках Хейла. Он хотел было отпустить ее и броситься к лифту Стратмора, но это было бы чистым безумием: все равно он не знает кода. Кроме того, оказавшись на улице без заложницы, он обречен.
Я сказал, что ты занял мое место. - Впервые тебя вижу, - сказал Беккер вставая.
- Вы его убили. Вы же сказали… - Мы к нему пальцем не притронулись, - успокоил ее Стратмор. - Он умер от разрыва сердца.
Когда улица сделала поворот, Беккер вдруг увидел прямо перед собой собор и вздымающуюся ввысь Гиральду. Звон колоколов оглушал, эхо многократно отражалось от высоких стен, окружающих площадь. Людские потоки из разных улиц сливались в одну черную реку, устремленную к распахнутым дверям Севильского собора. Беккер попробовал выбраться и свернуть на улицу Матеуса-Гаго, но понял, что находится в плену людского потока.
