As the first in the series of programmed instruction handbooks, prepared by the U. S. space program, home study material is presented in this volume concerning familiarization and orientation on nondestructive testing. The subject is presented under the following headings: The Need for Higher Quality; Working the Billet; Forging Discontinuities; Casting Discontinuities; Tubing, Pipe, and Extrusion Discontinuities; Processing Discontinuities; and Welding Discontinuites. High product reliability in metal processing is the main concern throughout the volume. The material is designed for use with formal courses and written in a scrambled, self-study, self-pacing format including self-test questions. Learners are instructed when to turn the book around and read the upside-down printed pages. "Linear review" frames are given at various points to help learners in reviewing the preceding material. Besides illustrations for explanation purposes, a self-test answer sheet is provided. (CC)
