The course provides an introduction to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Code, Section V – Nondestructive Examination (NDE).  Participants will learn about the various applications of NDE as well as the various techniques.  NDE uses techniques such as radiographic examination, ultrasonic examination, magnetic particle examination, liquid penetrant examination to determine if materials or components are acceptable for use or if they are defective.  NDE is an indispensable means of assuring sound construction. 

NDE tests are conducted to detect and size defects, discontinuities, and flaws in materials and weldments during manufacture, fabrication, and construction of parts, components, and vessels in accordance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and other ASME Standards; for example, B31.1 for power piping.
