What are the different types or methods of NDT?

Any different of NDT methods?

Common NDT methods:

  • RT — Radiography
  • UT — Ultrasonics
  • MT — Magnetic Particle
  • PT — Liquid Penetrants
  • VT — Visual
  • LT — Leak Testing
  • ET — Electromagnetic (Eddy Current)
  • AE — Acoustic Emission

For a beginner, I recommend to open book SCWIP-WI5 2017 and learn more section 5. In there instruct you 4 methods are most used (radiographic, ultrasonic, dye penetrant and magnetic particle methods).
