This volume covers the latest standards on nondestructive testing of engineering materials, structures, and assemblies to detect flaws and characterize materials properties.
Radiology--eference radiograph standards, which when accompanied by ASTM's standard radiograph plates, are used to illustrate the type and degrees of discontinuities that may be found in castings and welds. Others detail the procedures required for proper radiographic examination.
Magnetic Particle and Liquid Penetrant Examination--test methods, practices, and reference photographs examine minimum requirements and various techniques.
Acoustic Emission--standard procedures for operating acoustic emission sensors and monitoring structures.
Ultrasonic--practices for performing ultrasonic examination of tubing, weldments, and other materials.
Electromagnetic--standards detail procedures to follow when performing electromagnetic (eddy current) examination of ferrous and nonferrous metals, and in particular, various tubular products.
Leak Testing--practices and tests establish procedures for leak testing of open and sealed units.
Other headings in this volume include infrared methods, nondestructive testing agencies, and metals sorting and identification.
