Paper Abstract

A brief overview is provided on three common methods of nondestructive evaluation (NDE), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Radiographic Testing (RT) and Eddy Current (EC). These methods vary in the physics applied to the testing or evaluation process while specific techniques vary in the way each method may be applied. Understanding the physics behind each method and constraints of each technique helps us understand the capabilities and limitations of the inspection. Recognizing the capabilities and limitation of these NDE Techniques helps us properly design the inspection, collect and process data and draw appropriate conclusions.
