Description

Interpretation of ultrasonic NDT data can be a complex task. Interpreters must be highly skilled, and in the inspection of large engineering structures a bottleneck can arise at the manual interpretation stage. Boredom and fatigue of interpreters can lead to unreliable, inconsistent results, where significant defects are not reported. There is therefore great potential for the automation of the interpretation process through computer software. If some or all of the tasks of the interpreter can be performed by computer systems, the overall process is made more reliable and the time required is reduced.
