It is essential for a NDT
technician to have a good understanding of the materials they may encounter in their career. Hours are spent training individuals on the fundamentals, principles, and application of the various NDT
methods, but the condensed hours to absorb this material leaves little time for materials technology.
This course is designed to equip NDT
technicians with a basic knowledge of metals beyond the approach of such information during method training. Primary focus is upon steels, their alloys, aluminums, titanium, and related materials encountered in normal application, as well as special application, such as turbine engines. From how they are made to how they exist in relation to lattice structures, molecular structures.
More importantly, the various forms of manufacturing are discussed (casting, welding, sintering, forging, heat-treating, etc.) and discontinuities related to the various manufacturing schemes are analyzed. The discussion will also involve the NDT
methods best suited to disclose the discontinuities. The course concludes with a discussion on service-related issues, such as fatigue crack, corrosion, and other damage mechanisms that the technician may encounter.
The course is 3 days, 24 hours in length and could be a huge aid also for Level IIs considering Level III certification.
