Course Description

 Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) involves a number of inspection techniques designed to detect discontinuities or defects in different types of materials. NDT is used in many fields, such as the aircraft industry, pipelines, nuclear reactors, automotive servicing and many others.

This  course covers the fundamental NDT methods currently employed and instills particpants with the ability to assess factors affecting choice of methods to be utilized in relation to materials, defect type, position and other relevant parameters.

Course Objectives

  • To understand the scope and applications of NDT
  • To familiarize with the available methods
  • To explain the basic principles of these methods
  • To identify the advantages and disadvantages of different methods, both in application and defect detection capability
  • To assess the best method to utilize given the conditions of different circumstances

Who Should Attend?

  • Plant Engineers,
  • Plant Surveyors Inspectors
  • Materials & corrosion engineers
  • Those requiring a general foundation of Non-Destructive Testing and the various methods employed in this area.
