Description

In 1982 Pacific Northwest Laboratory began activity under the sponsorship of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to implement SAFT technology in a field usable system. The University of Michigan had previously laid the groundwork by performing extensive research related to the development of the SAFT algorithm in the area of ultrasonics and the investigation of ways to improve the computation time [1,2]. The task given PNL was to deploy the results of this research effort by developing an instrument that would perform in-service inspection of nuclear reactor components using the SAFT-UT algorithm.
