In nuclear plants, video systems are deployed to enable remote inspection of reactor pressure vessel internal components for cracking and other damage. This report investigates software and hardware technology (such as higher resolution, automated crack detection, and video filtering) to assist plant analysts as they evaluate images from video systems.
In nuclear plants, visual inspection techniques—such as viewing directly with the eyes and remote viewing via cameras and fiberscopes—are commonly used to detect cracks in concrete structure and stainless steel surfaces. This report includes a survey of these techniques, an assessment of the effectiveness of algorithms to measure the width of cracks, hardware requirements for […]
