WELD228W: Survey in Nondestructive Examination

Lecture Hours 1 Lab Hours 0 Credits 1

In Survey in Nondestructive Examination, students explore the methods of examining welds utilizing nondestructive techniques. Welders apply these methods to find discontinuities within welded material and to determine if a weld is structurally sound. The testing and examination methods that students explore include visual testing (VT), ultrasonic testing (UT), radiographic testing (RT), electromagnetic testing (ET), liquid penetrant testing (PT), and magnetic particle testing (MT). Students become familiar with the application and suitability of each of these methods in the various sectors of the welding industry.
