Destructive & Non-Destructive Testing

The above URL contains the entire discussion. Below is a snippet.

Are there any good sites that inform about destructive and non-destructive material testing techniques? (Preferably one site with all of it on, lol). All I’ve been able to find are different sites with thousands of different pieces of equipment for sale that used to perform the tests, not what the tests are about or the science behind it. Are there any sites on destructive testing??

Any help would be greatful


I am not sure that such a site exists. I would recommend you start at the following sites:

ASNT has some excellent publications at their website. ASM International has some excellent publications on this topic as well, including ASM HANDBOOK Volume 17 Nondestructive Evaluation and Quality Control. You can find out more on their website:

Specific manufacturers sites can also be useful. Some sites you may find useful include the following:

Other sites to consider are research centers affiliated with various universities
