Destructive Testing

Destructive Testing is a testing method that analyzes the point at which a component, asset, or material fails.

Inspectors subject the material they are testing to different destructive test methods, which will deform or destroy the material completely, to gain insights into how the material performs under pressure.

DT methods can identify the physical properties of a component, like toughness, hardness, flexibility, and strength. DT is most commonly called destructive physical analysis (DPA) or destructive material testing (DMT).

What Is Destructive Testing?

DT aims to deform or destroy a material to analyze its point of failure; in contrast, non-destructive testing utilizes inspection methods that do not cause any damage to a material or asset.

Inspectors make use of both DT and NDT in various scenarios. For example, DT is used before mass-producing a component or deploying it in its actual application to understand how it will react when exposed to different stress types.

NDT technicians apply NDT to examine assets already in operation to detect damage early and prevent operational failures. This testing method assists in maintaining asset records, determining maintenance schedules, and pinpointing defects before they escalate.
