Nondestructive testing has been defined as comprising those test methods used to examine an object, material or system without impairing its future usefulness. Nondestructive testing is used to investigate the material integrity of the test object. Non-destructive testing is used to detect abnormalities in physical, chemical or electrical characteristics. Nondestructive testing is concerned in a practical way with the performance of the test piece - how long may the piece be used and when does it need to be checked again? The strength of the group lies in its dedicated, multi discipline professionals, expert and experienced governing board, innovative management and high accuracy measuring instruments & computerized data management system.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Ultrasonic Flaw Detection Test

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Ultrasonic Flaw Detection Test | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

Ultrasonic flaw detection is basically a comparative technique. Using appropriate reference standards along with knowledge of sound wave propagation and generally accepted test procedures, a trained operator identifies specific echo patterns corresponding to the echo response from good parts and from representative flaws. The echo pattern from a test piece may then be compared to the patterns from these calibration standards to determine its condition. Sound waves are simply organized mechanical vibrations traveling through a medium, which may be a solid, a liquid, or a gas. These waves will travel through a given medium at a specific speed or velocity, in a predictable direction, and when they encounter a boundary with a different medium they will be reflected or transmitted according to simple rules. This is the principle of physics that underlies ultrasonic flaw detection.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Nondestructive testing or Non-destructive testing (NDT)

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Nondestructive testing or Non-destructive testing (NDT) | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

NDT provides an edge over conventional methods as it is a fast, cheap and easy process. In 1930s, non destructive testing, where it had been heard of at all, was generally considered an evil. Later it became a necessary evil. For a number of years now NDT has been a necessary aid. NDT has saved uncounted thousands of lives. Non destructive testing is not confined to crack detection. Other discontinuities include porosity, wall thinning from corrosion and many sorts of disbond.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Dye Penetration

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Dye Penetration | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

The penetrate technique does not depend upon ferro-magnetism like attractive compound examination, and the arrangement of the discontinuities is not a factor. The penetrate technique is effective for discovering area problems in non attractive materials and in a variety of non metal materials. The technique is also used to examine items made from ferromagnetic materials and its understanding is generally greater than that of attractive compound examination.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Visual Inspection

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Visual Inspection | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

Visual Inspection is one of the most widely used Non-Destructive Testing methods for the detection of discontinuities before they cause major problems, e.g. poor welding, surface defects, corrosion pits, general condition, degradation, blockages and foreign materials.

Visual Inspection means the inspection of equipment and structures using a combination of human senses such as vision, hearing, touch and smell. Visual Inspection is sometimes carried out in conjunction with devices such as a low power magnifying glass, boroscopes, fiberscopes, digital video borescopes, camera systems and robotic crawler systems.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: CLASSIFICATION OF NDT TEST METHODS

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: CLASSIFICATION OF NDT TEST METHODS | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

Nondestructive techniques are the means by which materials and structures may be inspected without disruption or impairment of serviceability. The science of nondestructive testing incorporates all the technology for detection and measurement of significant properties, including discontinuities, in items ranging from research specimen to finished hardware and products.

Nondestructive testing has become a progressively more fundamental factor in the effective conduct of research, development, design and manufacturing programs. However, the information required for appreciating the broad scope of nondestructive testing is widely scattered in a multitude of publications and reports.

The National Materials Advisory Board (NMAB) Ad Hoc Committee on Nondestructive Evaluation adopted a system that classified methods into six major categories: visual, penetrating radiation, magnetic-electrical, mechanical vibration, thermal and chemical- electrochemical.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:
Ultrasonic concrete testing is based on the pulse velocity method to provide information on the uniformity of concrete, cavities, cracks and defects. The pulse velocity in a material depends on its density and its elastic properties which in turn are related to the quality and the compression strength of the concrete. It is therefore possible to obtain information about the properties of components by sonic investigations. Test Method: IS 13311 (Part 1) The pulse velocity in concrete may be influenced by a) Path length b) Lateral dimension of the specimen tested c) Presence of reinforcement steel d) Moisture content of the concrete

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Portable Hardness

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Portable Hardness | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

Hardness is a material's resistance to penetration. In general, an indenter is pressed into the surface of the material to be tested under a specific load for a definite time interval, and a measurement is made of the size or depth of the indentation.
Hardness properties include such varied attributes as resistance to abrasives, resistance to plastic deformation, high modulus of elasticity, high yield point, high strength, absence of elastic damping, brittleness or lack of ductility.

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Ultrasonic Investigation

Destructive And Nondestructive Testing: Ultrasonic Investigation | Sigma Test & Research Center | Scoop.it
ndtindia's insight:

Of all the applications of industrial ultrasonic testing, flaw detection is the oldest and the most common. Since the 1940s, the laws of physics that govern the propagation of sound waves through solid materials have been used to detect hidden cracks, voids, porosity, and other internal discontinuities in metals, composites, plastics, and ceramics. High frequency sound waves reflect from flaws in predictable ways, producing distinctive echo patterns that can be displayed and recorded by portable instruments. Ultrasonic testing is completely nondestructive and safe, and it is a well established test method in many basic manufacturing, process, and service industries, especially in applications involving welds and structural metals.
