The CEGB NDT Applications Centre is participating in the EEC-funded international Programme for the Inspection of Steel Components (PISC) because of its relevance to the inspection of Sizewell B and future PWRs. This report describes an inspection monitoring exercise undertaken by NDTAC at the initiation of the PISC-III Ultrasonic Modelling Group. The aim of the present exercise was to ensure that data obtained by the various contract organisations participating in the PISC II Parametric Studies were of high quality, were a complete record of the inspection and would yield valid comparisons with the predictions of theoretical models. The exercise entailed visits by a nominated CEGB observer to 4 European NDT Laboratories at which the parametric studies were in progress; CISE (Milan); UKAEA (Harwell); UKAEA (Risley) and Vincotte (Brussels). This report presents the findings of those visits.
