Description

The book includes fundamental concepts of theory, instrumentation, and experimental practice as well as practical applications. An important chapter setting the book apart from other publications describes the properties of materials and presents case studies from industry. In addition, a program called IRNDT accompanies the book and is available on the Wiley ftp site. The program includes an image bank that can be used to test the principles covered in the book.
* All chapters end with summaries, problems, and questions.
* Authored by an acknowledged expert in the field.
* Material draws on case studies to illustrate major points.
