DETERMINING VARIABILITY OF WALL THICKNESS MEASUREMENTS DURING ULTRASONIC INSPECTION OF SHIPSYSTEM COMPONENTS

A test program conducted to explore the variability of ultrasonic wall thickness measurements associated with shipboard seawater piping system components is described. Measurements taken during the test were performed by NDT-trained hull technicians. The test took place at a Naval shipyard in a controlled laboratory environment. The purpose of these measurements was to ensure the structural integrity of select shipsystems components. Five major conclusions derived as a result of this effort are discussed.
