NDT — Non-Destructive Testing Services

Nondestructive testing or non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques used in science and technology industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage (Cartz,1995). The terms nondestructive examination (NDE), nondestructive inspection (NDI), and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) are also commonly used to describe this technology (Hellier, 2012). Because NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time in materials and product evaluation, troubleshooting, failure investigation, forensic engineering, and research.

Alpha Adroit Engineering provides a wide range of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) services for forensic engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, pipeline, electrical engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental consulting, civil engineering, offshore engineering, and mining applications, including: 

    • Nuclear density and moisture content testing for soils (soil compaction testing), concrete, aggregate, asphalt, and rock
    • Ultrasonic inspection (A-Scan, B-Scan, C-Scan, 3D)
    • Cross-hole Sonic Logging (CSL) - integrity testing 
    • 2D and 3D Tomography using Cross-Hole Sonic Tomography (multiple sections, generaly >4)  
    • Ground Electrical Resistivity 
    • X-Ray inspection
    • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) 
    • Concrete Penetrating Radar (CPR), Ultrasonic Pulse Echo, and Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity
    • Concrete Tomography and determination of rebar cover thickness, slab thickness, rebar diameter, and 2D and 3D rebar mesh layout
    • Determination of corrosion penetration, chloride and sulfate attack, internal water-filled and air-filled cavity, honeycomb, necking, and bulging in concrete
    • Flaw detection: detection of hidden cracks, voids, porosity and other internal irregularities in metals, composites, plastics, ceramics, and concrete
    • Weld testing and inspection
    • Pressure vessle inspection
    • Pipeline inspection
    • Rebar inspection in hardened concrete
    • Compressive strength of concrete structures and elements
    • Concrete strength and modulus of elasticity using sonar technology
    • Radiography inspection
    • Down-hole camera documentation and inspection (videotaping and photography in borehole and core hole) 
    • Visual inspection
