NDT Method References
The MFL Compendium: Articles on Magnetic Flux Leakage is a compilation of technical articles on magnetic flux leakage (MFL) drawn from ASNT’s monthly journal Materials Evaluation. The content offers real-world and laboratory-tested insight into the field of MFL. Students will find this publication to be an invaluable tool toward building an understanding of MFL while the seasoned technician will find the guide to be a useful reference document. The Compendium is one of the references used in the development of the ASNT NDT Level III examination for magnetic flux leakage and it is also cited as a training reference in the 2011 edition of ANSI/ASNT American National Standard CP-105.
A reproduction of Section Eight from ASNT’s Nondestructive Testing Handbook, third edition: Volume 4, Radiographic Testing. Contents: fundamentals; standards, codes and specifications; visual acuity; radiographic viewing conditions and equipment; densitometers; radiographic interpretation reporting; radiographic artifacts; discontinuity indications.
This classic reference has been brought back by popular demand. Contents: the theory and practice of X-ray interpretation for industrial purposes, advantages and disadvantages of using X-ray, radiation and high voltage safety, and many radiographs.
This publication is written for the NDT novice. It is intended to acquaint the reader with the fundamental nature of NDT. Contents: emphasis on the more common methods (ultrasonics, radiography, magnetic particle, penetrant testing, and eddy current), with a detailed overview of other testing techniques. The author covers the basic physical concepts of the testing techniques, how they are selected, who uses them, and how effective they are in practice.
A practical text intended for operators and inspectors who do not need all of the technical data contained in other publications. Contents: basic penetrant process requirements, systems and materials, application and removal, types of developers, inspection equipment, and personnel requirements.
A Level I/Level II book that teaches the basics of eddy current testing. Nine chapters with over 90 illustrations and quizzes at the end of each chapter. Contents: electric fundamentals, alternating current, electricity and magnetism, AC mathematics, basic eddy current theory, coils and instruments, nonferromagnetic conducting materials, crack detection, thickness variations, metallic cladding, delamination, ferromagnetic materials, multiple frequency testing.

Not only is this book an excellent reference for those who perform underwater magnetic particle tests, it explains inspection techniques that can be performed in dry environments as well. An excellent source for information about weld fabrication and in-service weld inspection. Contents: basic concepts of MT inspection; discontinuities; field strength and distribution; application and removal of magnetic particles; test sensitivity verifications; field indicators; lift strength; discharge machine notches. Over 50 photographs (40 in color) of equipment and indications in an underwater environment.
This book provides an in-depth look into foundry operations and how NDT is used to test foundry products. The author focuses on the application of magnetic particle testing, penetrant testing, radiographic testing and ultrasonic testing on castings of different metallurgical composition. Contents: the structure of metals; solid solutions and alloying; metallurgical elements of cast steel, cast iron, cast aluminum alloys; casting design; essential components of a NDT department; specifications; quality control; magnetic materials; X-ray diffraction; identification and classification of cast steels; designation of cast aluminum, aluminum alloys and their tempers; RTR systems; porosity and shrinkage in cast aluminum alloys.
