Non-Destructive Techniques for Microstructural and Structural Characterisation

Bhattacharya, D K (2001) Non-Destructive Techniques for Microstructural and Structural Characterisation. In: UNSPECIFIED.



The functional quality of a material or a component is influenced by (i) microstructure (ii) flaws (physical discontinuities like cracks, pores,delaminations etc.), and (iii) the presence of stress. Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques are used to control and enhance the quality at various stages of the life cycle of a material or component. In this paper, various NDE techniques are discussed. The techniques mainly discussed are ultrasonics,radiography, X-ray techniques, and acoustic emission. The principles,procedures, advantages, and limitations of each technique, as well as applications in various materials are considered.
