Dear Aziz,

If you must measure the wall from inside, you will need shoes or adopters for the proble to suit the curvature. This may be necessitated when the outer wall is not accessible for some reason. If the vessel is horizontal and can be rotated about its axis, so that you could always look down with the probe, you could substitute the plastic shoe with a water column.

Feel free to disuss the matter in more detail.

Swamy
