Being able to read and understand, as well as sketch, or even draw a blueprint, is important to the making of accurate parts and complete fabrications.
Blueprints are tools that communicate what needs to be built or made, what materials are needed and what specifications are required. They insure that a design is made with complete accuracy what meets the needs of the customer.
This book is an updated version of the originally authored publication by the Department of Engineering and Drafting Technology Department at Linn-Benton Community College, in Albany Oregon.
This booklet will lay out step by step procedures and how they can aid a crafts-person to build templates to build both simple and complicated fabricated parts. Types of materials that can be used with these templates is a combination of flat sheet and round tube our pipe.In order to be successful in the use of this booklet you need to have a good understanding of basic blueprint reading skills, industrial math skill and also basic geometry. Couple this with welding and fabrication skills you can produce a wide variety of fabrications and weldments. This booklet will start off with simple flat patterns and work in to more complex templates for pipe.
Subject areas include use of layout and fabrication tools, structural steel connections and components, chalk line layout, tank layout, ladder layout, stair layout, ring-flange layout, pipefitting fit-up, fall-protection, and rigging.
Radiation Safety (NDT 130) is the first in a series of Industrial Radiographic Testing classes taught at Linn Benton Community College (LBCC) in Albany, Oregon. 40 hours of Radiation Safety training is required of any individual working with x-ray and Gamma radiation sources in industrial radiographic testing, including industrial radiographic inspection students. NDT 130 is part of LBCC’s two-year Associate of Applied Science program in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). The purpose of this OER is to provide students with a comprehensive textbook aligned with the NDT 130 course as taught at LBCC. NDT 130 is taught in accordance with ASNT, SNT TC-1A recommended practice and topical outline following ANSI/ASNT CP-105 2016 guidelines (page 63) for Basic Radiographic Physics Course and Appendix A (pages 113-114) for Radiation Safety topical outline.
