American Welding Society Learning | The Science of Nondestructive Testing -- eLearning Course
About the Course
This American Welding Society course describes welding discontinuities and the science and application of visual testing (VT), penetrant testing (PT), magnetic particle testing (MT), radiographic testing (RT), and ultrasonic testing (UT). Topics include discontinuities and their causes, as well as the role of vision, capillary action, magnetism, radiation, and sound in VT, PT, MT, RT and UT respectively.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Differentiate common welding discontinuities
- Examine the science and application of visual testing (VT), penetrant testing (PT), magnetic particle testing (MT), radiographic testing (RT), and ultrasonic testing (UT)
- Analyze the causes of common weld discontinuities
- Discuss the role of vision, capillary action, magnetism, radiation, and sound in VT, PT, MT, RT, and UT, respectively
