Title: A multiple-technology approach to pipeline inspection

Abstract: Pipeline inspection has changed. In the 70’s and 80’s we were content with defect detection. In the 80’s and 90’s we moved from detection to quantification. We are now poised to make the next dramatic step, more defects more accurately assessed. To better quantify defects and broaden the range of defects that can be detected will require the use of multiple technologies. Only by collecting more information can we advance the state of the art of pipeline inspection tools.

This new approach to inspection is just now beginning and ultimately will influence the development of future inspection tools. This paper deals with one specific application of this multiple technology approach, mechanical damage. This new approach will however find its way into the majority of inspection tasks. It will involve integrating inertial measurement into the inspection data; adding high resolution sensors to inspection tools to measure the bore of the pipe and using additional magnetic fields to better assess defects. It will involve using orthogonal sensor and adding some emerging technologies to inspection tools to improve the quality of the data and expand the range of detectable defects.
