This course provides an overview of structural integrity assessment for Aerospace and Mechanical engineers, starting with an introduction to Non-Destructive Inspection techniques. The traditional NDI techniques employed in the ADF for structural integrity assessment including liquid penetrants, ultrasonics, magnetic particle, radiography and eddy current testing will be covered and some new and emerging health monitoring methods will be introduced. This will be followed by an introduction to Fracture Mechanics and Fatigue and their applications to damage tolerance and durability assessment.
