Long Term Monitoring of Cased Pipelines Using Long-Range Guided-Wave Technique

The proposed project will validate the effectiveness of the magnetostrictive sensor (MsS)-based guided-wave technique for long-term structural health monitoring (SHM) of ""cased lines"" at road crossings for External Corrosion Direct Assessment (ECDA) and Internal Corrosion Direct Assessment (ICDA). The technical objectives of the proposed work are to: (1) develop the capability of defect characterization and long-term condition monitoring of the cased-section of pipelines at road crossings using the long-range guided-wave inspection; and (2) evaluate and validate the capability in the field.
