This course is an introduction to terms and definitions and a method overview of nondestructive testing. Methods include eddy current liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, radiography and ultrasonic testing.
Explores the properties of materials, both metals and non-metals, and their applications in design and manufacturing. Define the advantages of Lean Concepts and applications.
Learn the major manufacturing processes used to fabricate parts, their possible discontinuities and how to choose the appropriate NDT methods to inspect them.
Visual inspection is the most widely used method of nondestructive testing. Learn to detect various discontinuances related to the power-plant industry, structural steel fabrication and construction industries, aerospace industry, petro-chemical industry, and manufacturing processes. Exercises are performed using many visual inspection tools.
Covers the principles of magnetization, the selection of equipment and the type of indications found. Students will operate, test and maintain quality control of the equipment and report results.
Covers principles and practices of liquid penetrant inspection. Students will learn why and when to use various types of penetrant materials and the proper techniques necessary for reliable inspection. Addresses the evaluation of liquid penetrant indications, interpreting standards and specifications, and checking penetrant system quality. Students will review fundamental liquid penetrant principles and techniques; develop and write procedures; and inspect welds, castings, forgings, and machined components. Parts are evaluated according to relevant codes and/or standards.
Designed to synthesize and integrate the knowledge gained in all previous courses and demonstrate the application of theory and practice through a project.
