Abstract
Fossil power plant operating and maintenance cost reduction efforts coupled with changing plant operating modes have rendered traditional approaches to plant component condition assessment inadequate. New NDE techniques are required to meet utility needs in this changing environment. Key attributes of such new techniques will be improved measurement speed and accuracy, reduced preparation requirements, automated data acquisition, and computer-based analysis support. In addition, tools will be required to assist power plant personnel in making the best decisions on what, when, and how to inspect plant components to achieve overall economic objectives.
