NDT.net Jan 2006: Bad Reichenhall: NDT-CE where and when? and how?

A 30 year old roof of an ice rink collapsed in Bad Reichenhall under the load of snow and buried 50 people. 15 people died, most of them children. Media reports that the weakness was known for several years but insufficient maintenance was done. No regulation of the frequency of monitoring structural health exists in Germany, even not for big public buildings. Now engineers want to establish a regulation as exists for bridges, DIN 1076. The disaster also brings into question the condition of highway and railway bridges, which accordingly to media reports, would be in a critical situation.
Because of the importance of the role of NDT in this field we postponed publishing the 3rd MENDT CD to the February issue.

NDT.net would appreciate to receive in the forum opinions related to this disaster. Exist in other countries regulations of Testing? When, where and how? What NDT methods are suitable or currently in research and development?

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
