Measurement Uncertainty in NDT

Hello,

I am interested in knowing the methodlogy for calculating the uncertainty in different Techniques of NDT to meet the requirements of ISO 17025, the standard for " Quality Systems for Testing laboratories ". Are there any suggestions on any guidelines ?

Thank You.

S S Ananthan

Re: Measurement Uncertainty in NDT
Hi

I posted something on Probability of detection on this forum some time ago. Two publications were recommeneded as a result.

Have fun

Wang

There are two publications I work from regarding PODs.
The first is the DOD/FAA pub "Reliability Assessment at Airline Inspection Facilities, V1: A Generic Protocol for Inspection Reliabilty Experiemnts", 1992.
The second publication is the DOD Hanbook "Nondestructive Evaluation System Reliability Assessment MIL-HNBK-1823, 30 Aprol 1999.
You may find the "format" you are looking for in these very informative publications.

Re: Measurement Uncertainty in NDT
Hopefully this doesn't sound too self-serving, but NTIAC sells an NDE Capabilities Data Book sponsored by the FAA that has among other things over 400 POD curves and presents guidelines on how to meet critical flaw detection requirements and demonstrating NDE process capabilities. For more information on the book, visit http://www.ntiac.com/pubs/databk3.html or our main page at http://www.ntiac.com.

Hope this helps,
Chris

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
