Structural integrity is paramount in the engineering profession. Without this not being guaranteed there is no justification for engineering at all. For whatever is designed or built the appropriate quality has therefore to be warranted. This is significantly achieved through non-destructive testing (NDT) being applied in the manufacturing and assembly process. NDT is not limited to detecting flaws during a manufacturing and assembly process only. Stresses and strength, hardness, porosity, humidity or density are parameters widely
