The field of NDT is a very large and interdisciplinary field that plays a critical role in inspection of crucial component. These test may fail due to either the fault in the equipment used, the miss application of the methods or the However, these techniques generally require considerable operator skill and interpreting test results. This paper presents the reviews of different works in the area of NDT and tries to find out recent and trends available in industries and other fields in order to minimize the total equipment cost, minimize damages and maximize the safety of machines, structures and materials.
