Nondestructive Testing (NDT) has grown considerably since the original edition of this book was published. There are now many schools offering courses in NDT. Improvements in computer speed, memory capacity, and software have also grown exponentially, leading to the development of more advanced NDT instruments and systems with improved monitors, sensors, software analysis, viewing and imaging programs. Available in an updated second edition that encompasses the many changes in the field, "Introduction to Nondestructive Testing: A Training Guide, 2nd Edition features new chapters on Laser Testing Methods, Thermal/Infrared Testing, and Vibration Analysis Method.
