Utilizing NDE Methods for Steel Casting Performance
Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) is a valuable tool for ensuring manufacturing quality and part performance in steel castings. The existing methods are workmanship standards and do not include performance. The current standards require large factors of safety and significant testing of a part to failure. The inspection level is set conservatively to ensure no failures in the field. Understanding the advantages and limitations of NDE methods is important.
