ASTM Nondestructive Testing Standards

The ASTM Standards for Non-Destructive Testing provide guidance on appropriate methods and techniques to detect and evaluate defects in materials and objects without destroying the sample.

Such tests include radiographic, ultrasonic, electromagnetic (eddy current), X-ray, acoustic and tomographic techniques.

The detected defects are evaluated for possible rejection for not meeting the stated acceptance criteria. These non-destructive testing standards are of great interest to laboratories and a wide range of industrial companies to investigate the quality of a material and thus its suitability for its intended use.
