The NDE 2-3 project is a great example of how access to the TDC can accelerate R&D. the 2014 work on this project has advanced to a position that all testing will be completed by the end of May and a draft report for team review available by the end of June.
We have also been able to test NDE technologies not in the original workscope due to opportunity events coincident with other activities in Houston.
A remote field eddy current technique being tested by a member company for their use at the TDC opened up and opportunity to apply the
technology to this project thereby increasing our knowledge base. The project has also had the chance to test novel technologies such as laser Shearography leveraging work being funded in Brazil by PETROBRAS.
