What are the NDT normal methods?
According to NASA research and analysis, Many NDT methods can be divided into six major categories of about 70 kinds. But the most common-used practical applications reside in the types as follows.
Conventional non-destructive testing methods are:
Ultrasonic Testing (abbreviation UT);
Radiographic Testing (abbreviated RT);
Magnetic Particle Testing (abbreviation MT);
Penetrant Testing (abbreviation PT);
Eddy Current Testing (abbreviation ET);
Non-conventional non-destructive testing techniques are:
Acoustic Emission (AE);
Leak Testing (abbreviation LT);
Which are the applications of nondestructive testing?
Non-destructive testing of raw materials; non-destructive testing during product manufacturing; non-destructive testing of products during usage (in service).
- NDT of various materials (metals, non-metals, composites, etc.)
- NDT of various workpieces (welded parts, forgings, castings, pipelines, etc.)
- NDT of various construction (steel structure engineering, road construction, water conservancy and hydropower, bridge construction, airport facilities, nuclear power plants, etc.)
- NDT of Safety and Security Engineering Project (airport security, container security, anti-terrorism riot, etc.).
