Abstract
In order to improve inspection result repetition and flaw ration veracity of manual ultrasonic inspection of offshore platform structure, an ultrasonic phased array inspection imaging technology for NDT of offshore platform structures is proposed in this paper. Aimed at the practical requirement of tubular joint welds inspection of offshore platform structures, the ultrasonic phased array inspection imaging system for offshore platform structures is developed, which is composed of computer, ultrasonic circuit system, scanning device, phased array transducer and inspection imaging software system. The experiment of Y shape tubular joint model of 60 degree is performed with the ultrasonic phased array inspection imaging system for offshore platform structures, the flaws characteristic could be exactly estimated and the flaws size could be measured through ultrasonic phased array inspection imaging software system for offshore platform structures. Experiment results show that the ultrasonic phased array inspection imaging technology for offshore platform structures is feasible, the ultrasonic phased array inspection imaging system could detect flaws in tubular joint model, the whole development trend of flaws is factually imaging by the ultrasonic phased array inspection technology of offshore platform structures.
