In this paper, a customized classifier is presented for the industry-practiced nondestructive evaluation (NDE) protocols using a hybrid-fuzzy inference system (FIS) to classify the corrosion and distinguish it from the geometric defects or normal/healthy state of the steel pipes used in the gas/petroleum industry. The presented system is hybrid in the sense… (More)
