Industrial computed tomography (CT) is a unique nondestructive evaluation technique for inspecting interior structures of test objects. While computed tomography has long been used by radiologists for medical diagnostics applications, industrial CT brings the same technique to inspection applications.
Magnetic particle inspection is a nondestructive test method that provides for the detection of linear, surface and near surface discontinuities in ferromagnetic (material that can be magnetized) test materials.
Ultrasonic flaw detection has been a valuable quality assurance tool for decades. Since the 1940s, inspectors have used the laws of physics that govern the propagation of sound waves through solid materials to detect hidden cracks, voids, porosity and other internal discontinuities in metals, composites, plastics and ceramics.
Olympus NDT has introduced a self-guided Phased Array Ultrasound Tutorial on its Web site www.olympusndt.com.This tutorial is an introduction to ultrasonic phased array testing, both for newcomers and for more
