Nondestructive Testing: a Definition

Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is the development and application of technical methods to examine materials or components in ways that do not impair future usefulness and serviceability in order to detect, locate, measure and evaluate flaws; to assess integrity, properties and composition; and to measure geometrical characteristics.

The terms Nondestructive Examination (NDE), Nondestructive Inspection (NDI), and Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) are also commonly used to describe this technology.

Due to the nondestructive nature of the tests, NDT is a highly valuable technique, allowing to save time and money in evaluating, testing and trouble-shooting.
It also allows the recovery of precious products.

Nondestructive Testing: Training

Nondestructive Testing (NDT) requires a formal training prior to certification. The training requirements depends on the specifications/sources.
