NDT in the Foundry

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.

Common Sense Approach to Thermal Testing

Thermal Imaging systems are particularly useful for evaluating the condition of power lines, transformers, circuit breakers, and motors. This profusely illustrated book provides the underlying physics of why and how objects emit radiation. Since this radiation is related to temperature, it is relatively to determine an object’s temperature. By using both simple and complex math, this book is intended for all that work with thermal imaging systems. This includes the researcher, system designer, test engineer, salesman, and end user. Since civilian and military applications are discussed, this book is useful to both communities.
