Human Factors in NDT Risk & challenges of Mechanism NDT

2006

The overall aim of the work presented in this dissertation was to explore for the first time the risks associated with mechanized NDT and find ways of mitigating their effects on the inspection performance. Hence, the objectives were to

(1) identify and analyze potential risks in mechanized NDT,

(2) devise measures against them,

(3) critically address the preventive measures with respect to new potential risks, and

(4) suggest ways for the implementation of the preventive measures.

IAEA Non-destructive Testing For Plant Life Assessment

2005

Non-destructive testing (NDT) technology provides services for remaining life assessment of industrial equipment and engineering structures. This technology has been applied in power generation, petroleum and chemical processes, manufacture of steel, civil engineering structures and transport. NDT evaluates the remaining operation life of plant structures. The major NDT methods are radiographic testing (RT), ultrasonic testing (UT), liquid penetrant testing (PT), magnetic particle testing (MT), eddy current testing (ET) and visual testing (VT). New techniques and applications are under development. Digital (film-less) radioscopy is an on-line NDT method for defect visualization. Quality control and accreditation processes help NDT laboratories to demonstrate that they are technically competent and that they generate valid results.

NDT - Evaluation of effective NDT screening method for in service Inspection rr659

2009

A wide range of engineering plant is subject to periodic in-service inspection in order to ensure continued safe and economic operation. The inspections are often performed by traditional NDT methods such as routine ultrasonics, magnetic particle inspection, dye penetrant inspection, visual inspection and radiography. These can be highly sensitive but the rate of coverage is often slow, so that full coverage can be prohibitively expensive, and extensive preparation for inspection may be required (eg access for internal visual inspection, removal of insulation for external inspection etc.) There are also many situations where geometry or access prevents the use of conventional inspection methods. Over recent years a wide range of advanced NDT techniques has evolved. These techniques provide large area screening of a component for significant degradation. Some of the techniques can be rapidly applied, much quicker than a more detailed, conventional inspection. Generally, the screening techniques are less sensitive than the more traditional methods. They also provide a means of inspecting areas which would otherwise be ‘uninspectable’. Examples include long range ultrasonics, pulsed eddy current techniques and saturated low frequency eddy current techniques.

Nondestructive Methods For Condition Evaluation Of Prestressing Steel Strands In Concrete Bridges

1999

This report contains the findings of a study performed to determine whether a practical and economical method for quantitative nondestructive condition evaluation of bonded prestressing systems in highway bridges exists. The report provides a comprehensive summary of a global technology review made to identify NDT methods developed in the time period commencing in 1990. The noted NDT advances of the decade, which possessed some potential for assessing strand condition, were characterized and evaluated based on technical, accuracy, operational, logistical, safety, and other factors. The contents of this report will be of interest to bridge maintenance engineers, researchers, and others concerned with assessing the condition of concrete bridges and the degree of strength and serviceability impairment created by deteriorating prestressing systems.
