ANRC 001 Ext Automated Classification and Sizing of Pressure Tube Defects Phase IV - GATED - YEAR 2

Project: Research

Description

During routine inspections of CANDU nuclear reactors a selected subset of the pressure tubes which house the nuclear fuel are inspected ultrasonically. This generates a large volume of data which has to be manually assessed. In this project, we are examining the applicability of automated intelligent analysis techniques to support the manual sizing and classification of any observed defects.
