  Destructive testing - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-23)
In destructive testing, tests are carried out to the specimen’s failure.
These tests are generally much easier to carry out, yield more information, and are easier to interpret than nondestructive testing.
Testing of an object is often done in view of future use, which would make destructive testing pointless.

 Nondestructive testing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In nondestructive testing, tests are carried out in such a way as to not disturb the specimen’s structural or surface integrity.
This type of testing is valuable because the specimen is not destroyed, however, these techniques generally require greater skill and the results are not always straightforward to interpret.
In general, destructive testing yields much more valuable information on the condition of the specimen, but because the specimen is destroyed, the cost is generally greater.

 Millipore Catalogue - Integrity Testing Methods
Millipore's practice is to perform destructive testing as a lot release criteria on samples from each manufacturing lot of all fabricated sterilizing-grade filter products, and non- destructive testing on each sterilizing-grade filter prior to sale to insure its integrity.
Destructive challenge testing is the best way to determine a sterilizing filter's ability to retain bacteria.
In this test, a highly accurate gauge is used to monitor upstream pressure changes due to gas diffusion through the filter.

 Introduction to Non-destructive Testing - NDT
NDT tests were used world-wide to detect variations in structure, minute changes in surface finish, the presence of cracks or other physical discontinuities, to measure thickness of materials and coatings and to determine other characteristics of industrial products.
Successful application of NDT methods to the inspection of manufactured goods requires that a) the test system and procedure be suited to both inspection objectives and types of flaws to be detected, b) the operator have sufficient training and experience, and c) the standard for acceptance appropriately define undesirable characteristics of a nonconforming part.
The advantages of real-time radiography are on-line testing of defect formation in the weld and study of metal fusion, filler-metal-to-base metal interaction, metal transfer and mass flow in the welding pool and the application of this information to welding process control (24).

 Nondestructive testing for forgings.
Nondestructive testing, sometimes referred to as nondestructive examination, is an examination or test method used to disclose discontinuities that may exist within a test specimen.
This testing or examination is performed in such a way that will allow the specimen being tested to remain unchanged.
All personnel performing nondestructive testing at Scot Forge are certified in accordance with written procedures that meet and exceed the requirements of SNT-TC-1A (A guideline for the "Qualification and Certification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel" published by the American Society of Nondestructive Testing).

 Bond Testing for Electronic Components using a New Non-Destructive Testing Technique
These bonds are tested manually using bond pull and bond shear techniques, but their destructive nature means tests are carried out on representative samples rather than the actual product.
It is these obvious weak spots that have inspired a team of researchers to revise the testing methods completely by developing a nondestructive system that uses light to test the integrity of bonds at least 30 times faster than the pulling and shearing methods.
The system’s co-developers predict their new method will revamp the old testing standards, leading to more stringent tests of bond strength in today’s high-tech electronics that can be done in a fraction of the time.

 Magnetic particle non destructive testing
Magnetic particle testing is accomplished by inducing a magnetic field in a ferromagnetic material and then dusting the surface with iron particles (either dry or suspended in liquid).
Underwater inspection is another area where magnetic particle inspection may be used to test such things as offshore structures and underwater pipelines.
It can be considered as a combination of two nondestructive testing methods: magnetic flux leakage testing and visual testing.

In particular the increasing need for non-destructive investigations is a major issue, as sampling is often restricted in view of the value or the uniqueness of the object.
Even in the case sampling is allowed, non-destructive testing offers the possibility of obtaining more information on one specific sample, as complementary techniques may be applied.

 Ultrasonic Non-destructive testing
Ultrasonic Testing (UT) uses sound waves having frequencies usually in the mega hertzs range.
There are several forms of ultrasonic waves, the most widely used in NDT being compressional (longitudinal) and transverse (shear) waves.

 AINDT Online :: The Home of NDT in Australia
Indeed, Tol, along with colleague Jack Deveney, were in fact the first of their kind in Australia to take a radiograph of a weld on a ship at the Duke and Orr’s dock in Melbourne in 1943 with an SP140 unit specially adapted for this purpose.
This fleeting association was to lead to long career in non-destructive testing at Williamstown, particularly on the Daring Class destroyers which were built at the Dockyard in the post war years.
The Japanese Society for Non-Destructive Inspection (JSNDI) bestowed further recognition on Tol when he was presented with the Ishii Award in 1996 for his contribution to the development and technology of non-destructive testing in the region.
