    Basic Metallurgy For NDT

    Basic Metallurgy For NDT

    It is essential for a NDT technician to have a good understanding of the materials they may encounter in their career. Hours are spent training individuals on the fundamentals, principles, and application of the various NDT methods, but the condensed hours to absorb this material leaves little time for materials technology.

    This course is designed to equip NDT technicians with a basic knowledge of metals beyond the approach of such information during method training. Primary focus is upon steels, their alloys, aluminium’s, titanium, and related materials encountered in normal & special application, such as turbine engines. From how they are made & exist in relation to molecular structures.

    More importantly, the various forms of manufacturing are discussed (casting, welding, sintering, forging, heat-treating, etc.) and discontinuities related to the various manufacturing schemes are analysed. The discussion will also involve the NDT methods best suited to disclose the discontinuities. The course concludes with a discussion on service-related issues, such as fatigue crack, corrosion, and other damage mechanisms that the technician may encounter. The course is 3 days, 24 hours in length and is a must for any individual performing NDT QA/QC services on those conducting such examinations.
