BINDT Workshop on NDT Requirements for Marine Composites

Whilst a significant amount of non-destructive testing (NDT) is already performed on marine composites, the sector needs further support in a number of areas including: the development of NDT acceptance criteria at the design stage for manufacturing and in-service defects, guidance on appropriate NDT method and inspection process selection, and new techniques for utilising NDT results for structural integrity assessment.

This workshop brings together marine-sector regulators, insurers, designers, manufacturers, constructors and operators to discuss the opportunities for, and benefits from, improved and enhanced non-destructive testing of marine composites.  The aim is to generate a document that captures these NDT requirements and ‘what success looks like’ for future NDT and its link to structural integrity and risk management.
