DEVELOPMENT OF A TEST BED TO IMPROVE IN-LINE INSPECTION (ILI) TECHNOLOGIES FOR GAS PIPELINE INSPECTION. TASK 1: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN. TOPICAL REPORT

As part of the effort in the research and development of techniques for the in-line nondestructive evaluation of gas transmission pipelines, a test bed vehicle has been designed to be used in the GRI NDE facility. The proposed test bed vehicle is a three section device with a 3D bend capacity. The conceptual design of the test bed vehicle addresses its ability to serve as a platform for various experiments and the data acquisition computer and the data analysis workstation required to process the data from such experiments. The conceptual design includes performance specifications.
