NDT history in Iran?

Dear friends,
I am a mechanical Engineering student. I am researching
about the " History of NDT in Iran ". Considering that
before revolution in Iran - 1979 - just foreign companies
had been involved in this field and actually they have left
Iran after revolution. Therefore NDT History is just traceable
from 1980 in Iran.
I really appreciate if any Co. or Inspector can help me
through any information that they have from the years before
1979.
With regards,Farshad Mobasher-Fard

Re: NDT history in Iran?
Farshad,

This may not help you much but I can tell you that in 1979 I was an NDT instructor for the USAF at Chanute AFB in Illinois and we had a number of students from Iran. Perhaps, you can somehow find one of them. Perhaps many of the native NDT technicians got their training through the military.

Good Luck.

I worked in Iran as a Welding Inspector in 1976-1977, for a company called Taqcco. They were an Iranian consulting company operating out of Terhan and I believe they had their own NDT personnel.
The job I was on was building Desalting plants in Ahwaz, it was a joint venture with Foster Wheeler.
The majority of NDT performed was Radiography using an Isotope as the radiation source. I do remember the equipment was quite primative and had the potential to give the operator large doses of radiation.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
