On behalf of the Department of Energy, the NDT Centre, Harwell has carried out a feasibility study of the use of magnetic particle inspection <MPI> for inspecting steel offshore structures. The study includes a literature survey, an examination of current British Standards on MPI and laboratory experiments. ln the final Report, of which this is a summary, some circumstances under which MPI could give misleading results are identified and recommendations are made for further work to optimise the application and interpretation of MPI offshore.
