    Significance and Use

    This guide is a compilation of standards intended to provide assistance in selecting appropriate nondestructive examination for advanced ceramics, and in turn, to provide guidance for performing the examination, as well as ensuring the proper performance of the equipment.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide identifies and describes standard procedures and methods for nondestructive testing of advanced ceramics using radiology, ultrasonics, liquid penetrants, and acoustic emission.

    1.2 This guide identifies existing standards for nondestructive testing that have been determined to be (or have been modified to be) applicable to the examination of advanced ceramics. These standards have been generated by, and are under the jurisdiction of, ASTM Committee E07 on Nondestructive Testing. Selection and application of these standards to be followed must be governed by experience and the specific requirements in each individual case, together with agreement between producer and user.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
