Non destructive testing (NDT) is an engineering practice where material characteristics – some of the physical and chemical properties, product condition, size, shape and discontinuities can be detected, examined and evaluated without destroying or damaging the product. These tests are performed in a manner that does not affect the future usefulness of the object or material.

NDT is commonly used as a quality assurance practice for ensuring products compliance for welds, castings, forgings and other wrought products. NDT is widely used as one of the condition monitoring practices for plant and assets life assessment, reliability engineering, maintenance.  Most of the NDT methods are reliable, accurate and economical.
