Ultrasonic sensors for health monitoring of pressure vessels: A survey

Abstract

Ageing pressure vessels are potentially dangerous in that when not properly monitored they can lead to catastrophic failure. This report surveys some novel sensor techniques for monitoring the health of gas pressure vessels. They emphasize non-invasive techniques such as provided by ultrasonic inspection. They range from acoustic emission, to resonance acoustic gas pressure measurement, to crack imaging by acoustic microscopy, to ultrasonic position indication.
