Looking for a reading materials.

I came from IT background and just join NDT fields. It was very new for me. I had attended the RT, MT and PT course. But still left a lot behind. Maybe u guys out there can recommend me with some reading materials. for example: material science, NDT Engineering and etc. Pls don't miss out the author and book title. Thank you so much.

I can whole-heartedly recommend Prof J E Gordon's two books "New Science of Strong Materials" and "Structures". He writes in a wonderfully clear way using examples to illustrate the science from Violette Pionnet's bias-cut dress to the Parthian method of bow construction with everything in between. Both are clear insights into quire significantly deep understanding of material science.

Also highly recommended is Dr R Halmshaw's paperback "Non-destructive Testing". Once you read these intermediate books, then other more advanced works will suggest themselves to you.

Good luck and much enjoyment.

I can recommend some General Dynamics NDT Handbooks that are great for learning these areas of NDT. You can purchase them straight from the publisher PH Diversified. They are inexpensive and have question and answers after each chapter. You will want the PI series of Handbooks. I have attached a link to the website where you can order them. If you want more info on the books, feel free to email me.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
