Sellafield Exclusive Webinar:
Structural and Condition Monitoring in Challenging Environments and Applications
Ensuring integrity of assets is essential for safe and efficient operation. Traditionally, this has been conducted through regular inspections. However, there is an ongoing driver within industry to move away from periodic inspection to continually monitoring approach. This approach not only has many operational and cost saving benefits but also has potential to enable implementation of a more pro-active maintenance regime.
Monitoring of assets in challenging environments however can be very difficult due to the demands to survivability of the sensors, remote access, power supplies and data relay. Furthermore, vast volumes of data can be acquired in a relatively short period of time which can make data interpretation, analysis and evaluation difficult.
This exclusive webinar will present how TWI is working to develop solutions to enable assets to be monitored in challenging environments through qualifying technologies for specific applications and developing procedures and processes for efficient data evaluation.
