Automated analysis of AGR fuel channel inspection videos

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

We present a number of tools useful for the inspection of Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactor (AGR) fuel channels using raw video footage recorded during routine inspections. The purpose of inspections is to identify, characterise and classify any defects in the graphite bricks, such as cracking, which provide supporting evidence as to the current health of the fuel channel. Originally, all analysis was performed manually and crack montages were formed by hand through a labour intensive process that could take many hours.
