NDT — Non-Destructive Testing Services

Nondestructive testing or non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques used in the science and technology industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage (Cartz,1995). The terms nondestructive examination (NDE), nondestructive inspection (NDI), and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) are also commonly used to describe this technology (Hellier, 2012). Because NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time in materials and product evaluation, troubleshooting, failure investigation, forensic engineering, and research.

Alpha Adroit Engineering provides a wide range of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) services for forensic engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, pipeline, electrical engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental consulting, civil engineering, offshore engineering, and mining applications, including:
