UNDERWATER INSPECTION AND NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF OFFSHORE STRUCTURES

Regulations have been established by the governments of countries bordering the North Sea which require annual inspection of offshore structures. This has resulted in a much more intensive use of nondestructive testing (NDT) techniques for underwater inspection than currently exists in the United States. This report presents a review of the NDT techniques and equipment currently used in the North Sea area and discusses some of the research being conducted in the UK and Norway to improve the quality of underwater NDT inspection.
