Aircraft Nondestructive Testing offers a modern take on nondestructive testing (NDT) to maintain aircraft and extend an aircraft’s useful life even more. This book explores many types of NDT methods that are commonly used in the aviation industry. You can see the physical, chemical, and electrical concepts that are applied and how they are used to help the technician “see” the defect without having to destroy the part in the process.
If you think you have a broken leg, you will probably expect the doctor to take an x-ray to confirm that it is really broken, and to give the medical team information needed to set the bone and put on the cast. It is not much different with aircraft structures and components. X-rays and many other procedures are routinely used to identify where the suspected defect is, and to help form a plan for repair or replacement.
This book is a full resource on testing and inspection methods on aircraft components that do not destroy the components. This includes NDT background, techniques, capabilities, and limitations for the most common NDT methods. It also covers inspection, maintenance, and troubleshooting practices that aviation maintenance technicians (AMT) will find valuable throughout their careers. This information will help both the AMT student and the AMT in the field. Learning the basics is the first step toward NDT technician certification.
Aviation Maintenance Training Schools can use Aircraft Nondestructive Testing for related specialty courses. Repair stations can use this publication for training purposes. The content is a deep dive into NDT but remains easily consumable. With 215 pages, illustrations, photos, glossary, and an index, Aircraft Nondestructive Testing is your next step into Avotek’s state-of-the-art maintenance training technology.
