What is NDT?

Non Destructive Testing (NDT) is a testing and analysis technique used by industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component, structure or system for characteristic differences or welding defects and discontinuities without causing damage to the original part. NDT also known as non-destructive examination (NDE), non-destructive inspection (NDI) and non-destructive evaluation (NDE).

Test method names often refer to the type of penetrating medium or the equipment used to perform that test.

The most common NDT methods are: Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT), Magnetic Particle Testing (MT), Radiographic Testing (RT), Manual Ultrasonic & Phased Array Testing (UT & PAUT), Visual Testing (VT), and Eddy Current Testing (ECT).
