This public course is designed for individuals who require an understanding of the principles, techniques and applications of the key Nondestructive Examination methods. This program uses PowerPoint to present the principles of Nondestructive Examination (NDE) and practical applications which will provide a basic comprehensive knowledge of the major methods.
Emphasis is placed on basic procedures, techniques, applications, advantages and limitations as related to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section V for each method. Examples of NDE devices supplement the classroom lectures to enable the attendee to obtain a better understanding of the general theory, uses and variables of the methods presented. Each attendee will receive a copy of the Handbook of Nondestructive Evaluation, 2nd Edition, written by Charles Hellier.
You Will Learn To:
- Describe the applications of the basic NDE methods and the various materials to be examined
- Explain the principles, procedures, evaluation, reporting and ASME Code requirements of the basic NDE methods
- Identify the techniques of the visual, penetrant, magnetic particle, radiographic, ultrasonic, and eddy current testing methods
