The course covers film quality, radiographic techniques and weld quality. The film quality chapter describes the checks necessary to ensure that the radiograph complies with various requirements and is suitable for assessment of the weld quality. The radiographic techniques section uses 3D animations to show how the technique employed affects the appearance of the weld image on the radiographic film. Finally, the weld quality chapter shows the possible radiographic images produced by external and internal weld defects. Examples are described using diagrams, photographs and real radiographic images.
Following the training course an interactive tutorial provides a question and answer session so the student can demonstrate how well the information in the course has been absorbed.
Finally the student can undertake a self-assessment test of ten radiographs, which gives a percentage success score and then permits review of the correct solution for each radiograph on completion of the test.
The Interpretation of Weld Radiographs CD is now available from TWI at a cost of £499 plus VAT.
