  4. Defect Detection in Water Pipelines Using Ultrasonic Guided Waves

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: F

    The integrity of water piping infrastructures is essential for providing safe drinking water and for the treatment of wastewater. As pipelines age, they deteriorate, corrode, and crack. Existing techniques, such as visual observation and closed circuit TV, for assessing piping integrity are expensive and have difficulty accessing particular regions of piping structures. Ultrasonic guided waves, on ...
