Non-Destructive vs Destructive Testing Workshop for Sixth Form

NDT, Non-Destructive Testing BTEC Workshops

Over the last 2 years, UWTSD’s School of Engineering has arranged visits for Year 13 students studying for an Engineering BTEC. The BTEC syllabus on the BTEC Engineering course requires to see and collect results for one destructive and one non-destructive test. The School of Engineering can facilitate this activity.

Example Activity:

To demonstrate the destructive testing on a metallic sample, a simple pull test is performed using samples with and without defects so that clear differences can be seen.

To compliment this, non-destructive tests on non-metallic samples are performed using samples with and without defects so that clear differences can be seen, however, this time without destroying the sample. 

Additionally, testing can be carried out using a Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) so that the vibrational response of the samples can be seen.
