  • Review of proposed NDE procedures
  • Coordination of material for calibration block production, as required
  • Fabrication of girth welds samples, with typical fabrication defects embedded (seeded defects) where required
  • Coordination of AUT inspection of welds with seeded defects and supply RT of these welds as needed
  • Destructive sectioning of girth weld samples
  • Statistical analysis of AUT predictions, RT reports and actual measured flaw sizes
  • Determination of NDE sizing errors for AUT
  • Approval of NDE procedures
