Abstract

The present day needs of the commercial market have forced the industry to manufacture materials which are stronger, weigh less and cost less. In other words, it is of prime concern to characterize the material properties. The characterization of a material can be done either at the time of fabrication or while the material is being used. A material can be tested in two ways, destructively or non-destructively. In destructive means of testing materials, a sample is selected randomly from a batch and is inspected thoroughly and the results are extrapolated in a manner so that they represent the whole batch. Since there is a need of high performance parts to be inspected while they are in use, this method of testing cannot be used. Hence, there is a need for alternate means of testing these type of materials which is answered by nondestructive testing.
