Stokes, Vernon L.
This document, the second portion of a two-part study, is designed to provide a guide for the formal training of technicians for nondestructive testing and inspection. Information in the guide is based on results of the industrial survey discussed in Part I. The subject matter is intended to be both flexible and comprehensive, and instructional goals must be focused on attainment of a high level of proficiency in each technician. This document contains an introduction consisting of considerations for instruction, significance of the manufacturing process, responsibility of the manufacturer and service company, and education objectives. Also, there are chapters on: (1) The Origin and Significance of Discontinuities, (2) Liquid Penetrant Methods, (3) Magnetic Particle Testing, (4) Eddy Current Testing, (5) Ultrasonic Testing, (6) Radiographic Testing, (7) Other Nondestructive Testing Methods, and (8) Curriculum. Sample illustrations and resource materials are appended, and a bibliography is included. Part I is available as VT 014 416. (GEB)
