14 November 1996 Experience evaluating NDE methods and personnel for detection and characterization of damage to high-temperature piping

Abstract
Conventional ultrasonic inspection techniques may not possess the required attributes to detect early stages of creep cracking, accurately size indications or differentiate between benign and detrimental defects. Typical types of damage are presented and the need for personnel and procedure qualification programs discussed. Training using service damaged reference materials has been found to be necessary.
