Program to Advance Computed Tomography for the Development of Reference Standards for Pipeline Anomaly Detection and Characterization

The project will develop an inspection process and validate the data produced through the use of Computed Tomography (CT) as a non-destructive evaluation technology system for measuring crack and seam anomalies in pipe steel. Validation of the CT Technology System will enable the pipeline industry to establish a set of reference standards that can be used for a wide range of purposes, including technology development and qualification, personnel training, and competency testing.
