Development of novel Non Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques and autonomous robots to be deployed by Remote Operating Vehicles for the sub-sea inspection of offshore structure welds - DEMOnstration


The SubCTest Demo project, a continuation of the FP7 R4S SubCTest project, has the objective to successfully demonstrate a robust NDT system, deployed by a Remote Operating Vehicle (ROV), that will reliably detect and evaluate discontinuities in pipes, risers and tubular structural components, including the welds.

Long range ultrasonic testing (LRUT) will be used to detect, locate and qualitatively assess the indications over distances of tens of metres either side the test site. Ultrasonic testing using electro-magnetic techniques will be used to evaluate, size and quantitatively assess discontinuities detected by LRUT.

Validation of the scanning and clamping manipulator systems will be demonstrated and analysis of the achieved accuracy will be conducted. Validation procedures will test both the reliability and robustness of the NDT system within prescribed underwater pipes or structures.
