POD/POS curves for non-destructive examination

On behalf of the HSE a review has been made of relevant results on POD (probability of detection) and POS (probability of sizing) of defects in welded structures. The aim is to obtain quantitative information on these topics which can subsequently be used in a probabilistic defect assessment and fitness for purpose (FFP) evaluations in the context of the Brite Euram project SINTAP, co-ordinated by British Steel.

Some of these research reports are very large, for information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
