Description

The inspection of thousands of miles of gas transmission pipelines is a formidable problem. Inspection tools based on magnetic flux leakage (MFL) and ultrasonic phenomena have been developed, and continually evaluated with respect to defect detection and characterization accuracy. The concept of probability of detection (POD) offers a measure for quantifying the capabilities of nondestructive evaluation (NDE) systems in the presence of various sources of uncertainties.
