The Department of Energy is hosting a Non-Destructive Examination Independent Review in Atlanta, GA

The Independent Review of Non-Destructive Examination Techniques and Methods for Application to High Level Waste Tank Storage will be conducted to evaluate recent developments in NDE equipment and how they might be applied to the unique conditions of high-level waste tanks. This review will provide a forum for experts from academia and industry to provide recommendations for cost effective NDE of both the tank steel and concrete materials. Participation in the Review is open to anyone interested in NDE techniques for waste tanks, including interested participants from industry and vendors, who will be invited to make presentations of recent improvements to equipment. The Review will also present a platform for discussion of the underlying philosophy of the use of NDE in an in-service inspection program. The use of statistical methods to evaluate the accuracy and disposition the results will also be discussed. From this, recommendations will be made for the NDE inspection program.

The following are some of the topics that will be presented and discussed at the Review:
  • DOE Expectations
  • DNFSB Expectations
  • Hanford NDE Overview
  • SRS NDE Overview
  • Hanford and SRS Waste Tank Inspection Issues & Limitations
  • Vendor/Industry Technical Presentations
  • High Speed UT
  • EMAT
  • Laser Mapping
  • Statistically based vs Risk-based Inspection Strategies
  • Statistical Perspective
  • Technical Discussions on Technologies Presented
  • Technical Presentations of Ongoing Studies (SRS/Hanford)
  • Round-table Discussions on Future Inspections
  • Concrete Evaluation Techniques
  • Robotic Options for Implementing Technologies into the Tanks
