radiography


radiography
The system of nondestructive testing (NDT) using X-rays or gamma rays to determine the condition of a part not visible without disassembly. Defects as discontinuities within the material show up in the density of the image of the film. X-ray inspection is used to examine the inside of the structure for corrosion or damage that deforms the structure. For detection of defects in small parts, gamma rays (cobalt-60; iridium-192) may be used.
X-rays are used to create a shadow image of light and dark, which reveals any flaws or inclusions in a test piece.
