NDT and Condition Monitoring Technical Group

The role of non-destructive testing (NDT) and condition monitoring is important for ensuring that fabrications meet required standards and can therefore continue operating reliably and safely throughout their service life, with NDT additionally potentially playing a role during decommissioning too. Examining materials, components or systems without causing damage enables manufacturing imperfections or in-service degradation to be detected and their subsequent impacts on the item’s fitness-for-service to be identified and determined.

Selection of the appropriate interrogation method and the most efficient combination of techniques and procedures are vital. These make sure that inspection programmes are cost-effective, providing high probability of detecting discontinuities. Equally, the consideration of training and performance of inspectors is a highly important element in meeting the detection capability required. For those primarily engaged in the manufacture or operation of components and plant, where integrity is of importance, these considerations are challenging.

The NDT and Condition Monitoring Technical Group provides information on current and challenging topics related to inspection and evaluation for various industry sectors and applications, aiming to explore topics such as:

  • structural assessments
  • development of tailored inspection techniques
  • validation of inspection processes and training

Focusing on current and relevant industry developments, this Technical Group provides a forum for networking and the exchange of ideas and knowledge with industry-leading speaker panels, including from TWI Ltd, the University of Strathclyde, Baker Hughes, Eddyfi Technologies, the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT), and more.
