Training Center for Non-Destructive Testing

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) are non-invasive procedures, tests, and analyses that do not compromise the functionality of the object under examination. They are adopted to evaluate the condition of a material and detect defects or anomalies that may compromise its integrity and safety.
Non-destructive testing finds wide application in both the civil and industrial sectors.

In the civil sector, non-destructive testing plays a decisive role in monitoring built structures because it allows for the control of the structural behavior of a building and timely intervention in case of anomalies, discontinuities, and damages that may jeopardize its safety and normal functioning.

In the industrial sector, for the same purpose of control and verification, non-destructive testing is used in production processes to verify the technical characteristics of products.

What are the main techniques of Non-Destructive Testing?

The main techniques of Non-Destructive Testing are as follows:

  • Static monitoring and dynamic characterization of civil structures
  • SonReb method on concrete
  • Ground-penetrating radar (Georadar) investigations
  • Thermographic investigations
  • Pull-out tests
  • Ultrasonic tomography
  • Ultrasonic testing of welds
  • Radiography
  • Magnetic particle inspection (Magnetoscopia)
  • Liquid penetrant testing
