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.
