Abstract

The department END of FRAMATOME has participated together with other European laboratories in applying new non-destructive control techniques on the test pressure vessels (scale 1:5) at JRC-Ispra. The works carried out refer to the characterisation and the dimensioning of ultrasonic (USO) signals by respective data processing methods. The results have been compared with the interpretations of the USO operator. The examinations were performed in three separate measurement campaigns during fatigue cycling and thermal treatment of one of the vessels. They allow an evaluation of the methods applied and the operator conditions with regard to the set objectives.
