NDT Global has released a white paper on accurate geometry pipeline inspections.
‘A new level of accuracy for geometry inspections’ discusses the advantages and reliability of ultrasonic technology for geometry measurement.
The paper demonstrates the detection, identification and sizing capabilities and geometric mapping capabilities for 3D assessment methodologies.
According to NDT Global, accurate pipeline geometry measurement is essential for integrity assessment and strain-based assessments have focused on how to accurately determine the axial and circumferential radius of dents using inline inspection geometry data to calculate.
A new dent assessment, developed by a Pipeline Research Council International research project, uses true pipe geometry deformation to carry out fatigue life assessment.
The accuracy of the results is based on certainty of the input data.
