Non Destructive Examination (NDE) or Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of critical components is imperative to ensure that our nation’s structural steel infrastructure is free of cracks and cluster porosity.  Occlusions and defects which may be invisible to the naked eye can lead to catastrophic failures in components utilized in skyscrapers, highways, and airplanes.
