Using permanently installed sensors for structural health monitoring of nuclear power plant components can reduce costs associated with nondestructive evaluation inspections while providing better information. This research identified two applications in which structural health monitoring might provide value: gas void detection and pitting in heat exchanger interconnection piping.
