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 based on half-remaining life method.   TML ID TML 001 required thickness 0.35 in inspection date 1-Jan-00 TML reading 0.525 in TML ID TML 001 required thickness 0.35 in inspection date 1-Jan-05 TML reading 0.510 in TML ID TML 001 required thickness 0.35 in inspection date 1-Jan-10 TML reading 0.505[…]
