Nondestructive testing (NDT) is a techniques used in science and industry to evaluate the properties & imperfections of material, component or weld. NDT is commonly used in forensic engineering , mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering , electrical engineering , civil engineering , system engineering , aeronautical engineering , medicine and art . NDT is used in a variety of settings that covers a wide range of industrial activity, with new NDT methods and applications, being continuously developed. Non-destructive testing methods are routinely applied in industries where a failure of a component would cause significant hazard or economic loss, such as in transportation, pressure vessels, building structures, piping, and hoisting equipment. NDT is applicable in weld verification, structural mechanics, radio grapy in medicine. NDT is divided into various methods of non destructive testing, each based on a particular scientific principle. These methods may be further subdivided into various techniques. The various methods and techniques, due to their particular natures, may lend themselves especially well to certain applications and be of little or no value at all in other applications. Therefore, choosing the right method and technique is an important part of the performance of NDT.
