Defect Sizing with EMAT MRUT: new advances in defect characterization in pipelines

Innerspec Technologies in collaboration with the University of Alcalá de Henares is accomplishing a research chair on Modeling and Advanced Signal Processing of ultrasounds. The purpose of this chair is to investigate defect sizing capabilities using EMAT guided waves.

Researchers are applying advanced signal processing techniques to EMAT Lamb Waves to develop a novel methodology that provides accurate information about pipeline’s remaining wall thickness and defect profile.

Promising preliminary results arising from this collaboration have been published on the peer-review journal “Sensors”. The full manuscript describing results can be consulted here
