Project code: NFRP-2016-2017-755500
ES programme: H2020
The main aim of ADVISE H2020 is to enable the ultrasonic inspection of complex structured materials so as to improve confidence in inspection of Generation II and III European reactors.
ADVISE will enable:
ADVISE has four main technical objectives:
ADVISE H2020 proposes a coordinated and novel approach which will enable the delivery of a set of techniques and methods answering the industrial and European endeavour to keep on improving and maintaining power plants safety and reliability across its territories. ADVISE will address the current inspection challenges by delivering documented capabilities for the identified classes of inspection problems, demonstrators on industrially relevant example cases and dedicated software tools.
The main output of the project is a step change improvement in performance in terms of inspectable depth, defect detection and characterisation accuracy. For austeno-ferritic cast components, an increase of the inspectable depth of 70 to 85 mm is aimed for. Equally importantly, the in-situ characterisation for specific inspections will provide the confidence needed to make safe decisions from measured indications without the significant conservatism that is needed in many cases currently.
Concretely, the following results will be delivered by ADVISE:
EDF (France), ICL (United Kingdom), University of Bristol (United Kingdom), Framatome (France), UJV (Czech Republic), Extende (France), M2M (France), MPA Stuttgart (Germany), Fraunhofer IZFP (Germany), CEA (France), Arrtic (France), Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania), BZN (Hungary).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
