Radiography Has a Night at the Museum

Nondestructive testing is used in many ways. Its primary usage is in the industrial marketplace (such as automotive, aerospace, the power industry, transportation, military equipment, and many others), but from time to time it is also used in more unusual circumstances. Many historical items have also been tested using nondestructive testing methods. For instance, the Liberty Bell; the Confederate submarine, the H.L. Hunley; and artifacts from René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle’s ship, La Belle; as well as other historical items have been inspected for the purpose of preservation and conservation. Even famous paintings have been X-rayed to determine condition and to reveal if other paintings are beneath the top painting. In these situations where unusual NDT projects come up, it is not uncommon for one company to seek the assistance of another in performing the inspection. This article recounts a project that involved two NDT companies working together to solve an unusual inspection problem for a specialized application.
