Abstract

The catastrophic collapse of several offshore platforms has spurred the development of nondestructive inspection techniques for offshore structures. Presented here are the concepts of an ultrasonic global inspection technique. Also presented are the results of feasibility studies conducted on 1/19-, 1/10-, and 1/3-scale model K-joint models using this technique for early detection of damage. The technique takes advantage of the geometry of tubular joints to give global ultrasonic coverage of a joint while employing a similarity-coefficient-based algorithm for actual damage detection. The data from the scaled models indicate a correlation between the value of the similarity coefficient and the extent of induced damage. The results are encouraging for further development of the technique for field use.
