When examining the condition of a pipeline, In-Line Inspection (ILI) utilizing various Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods is an essential tool and a significant factor in establishing a quality management program that ensures safe, cost effective operation of the pipeline. An in-line inspection concept has been developed by Sandia National Laboratories that uses a robotic vehicle rather than a conventional pig for in-line inspection. This vehicle could be capable of negotiating tight bends…
