METE478 NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF MATERIALS

Course Code: 5700478
METU Credit (Theoretical-Laboratory hours/week): 3(2-2)
ECTS Credit: 5.0
Language of Instruction: English
Level of Study: Undergraduate
Course Coordinator: Prof.Dr. CEMİL HAKAN GÜR
Offered Semester: Fall Semesters.

Course Objective

1.Decide, select, use and interpret proper nondestructive methods for inspection and evaluation of engineering materials. 2.Evaluate the materials and structures for the causes of discontinuities, which interfere with the usefulness of the part and thus find solutions to problem. 3.Design nondestructive methods for inspection and evaluation of materials and systems for quality assurance including production processes and assemblies.

Course Content

General description of most common NDT methods. NDT detection of metallurgical properties of metals their composition and size differences, Application of nondestructive evaluation for metallurgical processes and products. NDT detection in service produced defects mainly caused by thermal shock, fatigue, creep, or by corrosion attack.

Learning Outcomes

Students use knowledge to decide, select, use and interpret nondestructive methods for the inspection and evaluation of engineering materials for quality assurance, including production processes.
