NDT Non-Destructive Testing refers to an array of inspection techniques that allow inspectors to collect data about a material without damaging it. In the field, NDT is often used as an umbrella term to refer to non-destructive inspection methods, inspection tools, or even the entire field of non-destructive inspections. For commercial applications—the primary focus of this article, and of our work at Flyability—the goal of NDT is to ensure that critical infrastructure is properly maintained in order to avoid catastrophic accidents. While NDT methods are typically associated with industrial use cases, like inspecting weak points in a boiler used at an oil refinery, uses in medicine are actually some of the most common. For example, an expecting mother getting an ultrasound to check on the health of her baby would be considered an NDT use case, as would getting an X-ray or MRI to learn more about an injury.
Modern industry has been moving forward with unprecedented pace over past decades, while there is no doubt about the significant dedication by material science there. Of all the materials, advanced materials are becoming the driving source for extensive cutting-edge technologies, such as biomedical devices and wearable microelectronics. Generally speaking, the advanced material covers all the new materials, as well as existing materials but with modification for some specific applications, including ceramic materials, composites, metal alloys, and polymers. Normally, any advanced materials should not be accepted by industry until their properties have been fully understood for the sake of reliability, especially for their mechanical properties that are of particular importance to engineering applications. With the advent of a huge number of new materials and continued evolution of other advanced materials, how to easily and quickly evaluate them remains challenging.
Condition assessment and characterization of materials and structures by means of nondestructive testing NDT methods is a priority need around the world to meet the challenges associated with the durability, maintenance, rehabilitation, retrofitting, renewal and health monitoring of new and existing infrastructures including historic monuments. Numerous NDT methods that make use of certain components of the electromagnetic and acoustic spectra are currently in use to this effect with various levels of success and there is an intensive worldwide research effort aimed at improving the existing methods and developing new ones. The knowledge and information compiled in this book captures the current state-of-the-art in NDT methods and their application to civil and other engineering materials and structures. Critical reviews and advanced interdisciplinary discussions by world-renowned researchers point to the capabilities and limitations of the currently used NDT methods and shed light on current and future research directions to overcome the challenges in their development and practical use. In this respect, the contents of this book will equally benefit practicing engineers and researchers who take part in characterization, assessment, evaluation and health monitoring of materials and structures.
Nondestructive testing enables scientists and engineers to evaluate the integrity of their structures and the properties of their materials or components non-intrusively, and in some instances in real-time fashion. Applying the Nondestructive techniques and modalities offers valuable savings and guarantees the quality of engineered systems and products. This technology can be employed through diff This technology can be employed through different modalities that include contact methods such as ultrasonic, eddy current, magnetic particles, and liquid penetrant, in addition to contact-less methods such as in thermography, radiography, and shearography. This book seeks to introduce some of the Nondestructive testing methods from its theoretical fundamentals to its specific applications.
