Razi Metallurgical Research Center (RMRC) is a private research and educational organization specializing in engineering,
inspection and materials science. The Center’s research activities as well as services are focused on metals, polymers, ceramics
and development of engineering software.
In addition to its research and educational activities, RMRC offers laboratory testing and consultancy
services in the fields of physical, mechanical, extractive and industrial metallurgy and is
active in carrying out failure analysis and life assessment of industrial parts as well as performance tests of industrial parts and components.
The Centre also comprises computer, industrial parts design and engineering, library and information center departments.
The field of Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is a very broad, interdisciplinary field that plays a critical role in assuring that structural
components and systems perform their function in a reliable and cost effective fashion. NDT technicians and engineers define and implement
tests that locate and characterize material conditions and flaws that might otherwise cause planes to crash, reactors to fail, trains to derail,
pipelines to burst, and a variety of less visible, but equally troubling events. These tests are performed in a manner that does not affect the
future usefulness of the object or material. In other words, NDT allows parts and material to be inspected and measured without damaging them. Because
it allows inspection without interfering with a product's final use, NDT provides an excellent balance between quality control and cost-effectiveness.
Generally speaking, NDT applies to industrial inspections. The technologies
that are used in NDT are similar to those used in the medical industry, but nonliving objects are the subjects of the inspections.
