The 3D scanning methodology developed in the SUSEN project has succeeded in practice

Various evaluation methods for the creep deformation of pipelines were assessed by ČEZ during the inspection of the high-pressure steam pipeline at the Trmice power plant. In the competition of six different methods, the 3D scanning method used by CVŘ was assessed as the most accurate, providing the only relevant data for evaluation of the measurement results. This success will lead to the further development of cooperation with ČEZ in usage of the mentioned technology.

The development of new non-destructive testing methodologies is one of the research activities of the SUSEN SSD (Structural and System Diagnostics) program, which is important for the safety and economy operation and the prolongation of the lifetime of energy equipment.
