Wave-Based NDT Methods (edX)
Learn how to use wave-based NDT techniques, ultrasonic testing, acoustic emission, etc, to inspect the structural integrity of civil engineering structures, including highways, bridges, dams, and buildings. Wave-based NDT methods allow for reliable and rapid evaluation of civil engineering infrastructure. These methods are particularly useful in long-range inspection; for example, in pipelines, where the wave-based NDT can provide data on hundreds of meters of piping in a matter of seconds.

In this course, students will learn about wave-based NDT methods, including ultrasonic inspection, acoustic emission, resonant frequency testing, and electromechanical impedance testing. The topics include piezoelectric effect, basic principles of various wave-based NDT methods, and their associated data acquisition.

The course also includes case studies so students can apply the knowledge to field inspection or monitoring of materials and structures.



This course is part of the Materials Engineering for Intelligent Infrastructure MicroMasters program.
