An emphasis is placed on the current NDE state-of-the-art inspection methods for metal AM parts used in fracture critical aerospace applications. For completeness, high performance plastic AM parts are also addressed. The unique NDE challenges posed by AM parts compared to conventionally manufactured wrought and cast metal parts are covered. Current initiatives being pursued by government, industry, and national voluntary consensus organizations to identify high priority tasks and national standards needed to qualify and certify AM parts using NDE are also covered.
The Nondestructive Testing of Additive Manufactured Metal Parts course includes all of the following sessions. Sessions are also available for individual purchase.
