Nondestructive testing has become an integral aspect of shipbuilding both in the merchant and naval context. It is used primarily to give a basic assurance of quality in the finished product and in this sense has become part of a much broader quality control system which has influenced virtually every aspect of ship construction in recent years. It has the secondary purpose of cutting the expense of working materials which are inherently faulty and of assisting in the development of new manufacturing processes and materials.
