Non-destructive testing (NDT) can be used to inform and support the management of structures across all stages of their life cycle. This guide aims to increase the awareness of NDT in civil engineering, allowing for industry to better realise its full potential by supporting a better-informed, and ultimately more successful, application of NDT techniques within the sector.
The publication includes guidance on the selection, specification and procurement of NDT methods and techniques and background information on a range of individual techniques.
The information is intended to give asset owners, engineers and other stakeholders a level of background knowledge that will help them to understand the potential value of NDT and engage and communicate more effectively with specialists
