MAIN RESEARCH INTEREST / NAME OF RESEARCH PROJECT

Development of Inline Water Mains Inspection Technology: The Dutch drinking water network has been present for a long time. Installed assets have been degrading and will continue degrading until failure. The degradation state of the latter is unknown and the water companies are seeking to efficiently replace the assets that are close to their operational lifetime. A non-destructive testing method is to be developed based on several ultrasonic techniques in order to detect and measure degradation in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and concrete pipes. Furthermore, the effectiveness of this method under operational conditions will be investigated.
