Definition - What does Radiographic Inspection mean?
Radiographic inspection is the process of evaluating material using x-ray or gamma-ray technology. It is one of the most thorough methods of non-destructive testing which is used to evaluate objects for signs of flaws which could interfere with functionality.
Corrosionpedia explains Radiographic Inspection
The two types of radiation that are commonly used for inspection purpose are x-rays and gamma rays.
Radiographic testing is used extensively on castings and weldments. Radiography is well suited to the testing of semiconductor devices for cracks, broken wires, unsoldered connections, foreign material and misplaced components. Sensitivity of radiography to various types of flaws depends on many factors, including type of material, type of flaw and product form. Ferrous alloys can be radiographed, as can non-metallic materials and composites.
