Model Based Optimisation Of Non-Destructive Inspections

Istock 490726620Non-destructive testing is the notion of using non-invasive methods, such as ultrasound and x-rays, to inspect the internal structure of equipment to find damage. The development of these methods and the validation of their apability, referred to as qualification, typically involves producing a range of sensors to quantify the effect of variations in their design and a large number of defect specimens with variation in parameters such as defect location, size and orphology to assess the inspection’s capability to detect a range of defects. This can be an immensely costly and time consuming process, resulting in the process being prohibitive. This has been identified as a major barrier to the introduction of new inspections into service.
