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.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
