Course description

Destructive Testing

Destructive testing is an essential part of ensuring the integrity and performance of the welds used to manufacture everything from cars, planes, and ships to bridges, buildings, and pipelines. Destructive testing methods are also used for applications such as welding procedure qualification, welder performance qualification testing, and material verification. This engaging online course describes the material properties of metals that can be evaluated with destructive testing, as well as the principles and performance of the most common destructive tests used in the welding industry.
