Description

There is a real and increasing need to monitor the presence and growth of cracks in key regions of plant within the nuclear, gas and chemical industries [1]. A rugged, permanently attached sensor, capable of operating at temperatures in excess of 400° C, would have substantial benefits, since it would reduce the down-time costs incurred through the forced inspection of known or suspected flaws. By carefully measuring crack growth in-situ, under plant operating conditions, remedial action can be taken, either during planned outages of the plant, or when the crack depth exceeds critical limits.
