    An EMAT-based approach to locating and sizing defects in large welded steel plate structures

Abstract

Large steel structures are widely used throughout the industrial sector. The particular case being addressed here relates to the location and sizing of relatively large defects within very large, frequently abraded or corroded, steel structures. Such structures exist worldwide in many industrial sectors. As a case in point, consider a steel tank 20 m in diameter and 10 m high that is fabricated from a large number of welded steel plates, probably of varying thickness (say, from 12 to 24 mm) and frequently having a steel floor. The specific inspection task discussed here addresses the walls of such a tank but it is extendable to the floor.
