The Science of Nondestructive Testing
Science seems to play an every increasing role
in our society. The products that we buy and produce are becoming
more technical and, therefore, jobs are becoming more technical.
It is important to develop a good understanding of basic science.
The materials at the links below have been developed to introduce
some of the important scientific principles that are used in nondestructive
testing. The materials were originally designed for middle and
high school students, but students of all ages may find them useful
for a review of information that may have become fuzzy or been
forgotten with time.
The NDT educational materials at the links below
were developed to supplement materials currently used in college
NDT programs. The materials contain some interactive Java applets
which help illustrate important concepts and can be used as NDT
and Processes Primer
NDT involves the testing of materials, it is important for NDT
personnel to have a background in material science and the processes
used to manufacture product from various materials. This section
is intended to provide a basic introduction to material science.
