This book first appeared in 1975 when Mr D Birchon BSc CEng FIM FIMechE FIMarE, a distinguished engineer then working with the Ministry of Defence, accepted an invitation to write it for a series of Engineering Design Guides. The original version was published by the Oxford University Press (OUP) for the Design Council, the British Standards Institution and the (now defunct) Council of Engineering Institutions. When the book went out of print in 1986, by the kind cooperation of the OUP and with the consent of the original author, Dr R Halmshaw MBE CPhys HonFInstNDT, a leading authority in radiology and a well-known writer on non-destructive testing, was invited to revise Mr Birchon’s work. This is the result. The text describes the capabilities and limitations and indicates the order of cost of common NDT techniques. Some of the more recent techniques which may be in use in the future are also mentioned. Throughout, the emphasis is on the often neglected relationship between NDT and the design process. It is intended in this Engineering Design Guide to discuss the subjects of quality assurance and quality control from a practising engineer’s viewpoint with particular emphasis on the role of NDT, and how designers can (and should) use it.
