NDT Methods Applied to Fatigue Reliability Assessment of Structures

This book is a collection of nine specific application cases of various non-destructive test (NDT) methods in fatigue and fracture reliability assessment of structures. Applications cited include problems such as steel girder bridges, airframe systems, welded connections, and bridge components (including concrete slabs), which were subjected to fracture failure. The NDT methods covered in the book include: (1) radiography, (2) acoustic emissions techniques, (3) liquid penetrant, (4) use of various methods for the identification of the extent of damage, (5) electromagnetic, (6) magnetic particle, (7) residual stress by hole drill, (8) ultrasonic methods, (9) portable hardness test, and (10) structural monitoring.
