IDMS integrity database management system best practice 2 (asset management software)

integrity database management system best practice we will continue the previous article about IDMS integrity database management system. Previously we talk about design code and inspection method involved. now will focus on trending of inspection result.   IDMS integrity database management system – understanding trending In practice, the fixed interval of pressure vessel inspection is 5 years. UT inspector take measurement shell & head thickness at some location. we call it as TML, thickness measurement location. a IDMS data entry populate TML readings into IDMS software. IDMS software calculate short corrosion rate, long corrosion rate, remaining life, next inspection date[…]

3 ways to get the technical solution

3 ways to get technical solution Still remember the technical problem above? we get get many technical solution. the picture describes a plate having different temperatures on each side. How is the temperature distribution in the center of the plate? How much temperature at point x = 1, y = 2 or T (1,2) = ?? I need to stress that we are not looking for 100% accurate answers. It is highly unlikely we are looking 100% accurate. There are 3 approaches to address the above problem. The first technical solution is through technical analysis that requires considerable thinking skills.[…]

introduction to Infrared Thermography

What is infrared thermography? Infrared thermography is the science of detecting infrared energy emitted from an object, converting it to apparent temperature, and displaying the result as an infrared image. Literally, infrared thermography means “beyond red” (infrared) “temperature picture” (thermography) ~ http://en-us.fluke.com. On 2008 I joined infrared themography level 1 certification  managed by ITC (http://www.infraredtraining.com). This training teaches about the basic knowledge about infrared thermography, how to use infrared camera and things that can affect the results of shooting. If we use infrared camera, then we can capture the thermal image without touching directly with the equipment. This means we[…]
