  • Publication number: 20190227037
    Abstract: Embodiments include an electromagnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT) system. The EMAT system includes a plurality of magnets and a conductor set. The plurality of magnets has a like pole arrangement and wherein each magnet is in close proximity to one another. The conductor set includes electrically conductive elements. A portion of the conductor set is positioned proximate to the plurality of magnets. The plurality of magnets and the conductor set are positioned proximate to a test object. The EMAT system is configured to perform at least one of generating and receiving an elastic wave. Embodiments also include a method of elastic wave measurement for nondestructive testing and evaluation.

  • Patent number: 9201045
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods of inspecting a body of a tubular, are provided. An exemplary electro-magnetic acoustic transducers (EMAT) tubular inspection system for inspecting a body of a tubular includes an EMAT in-line tubular inspection device. The device can include a spine having a longitudinal support body and radially projecting rails, and multiple telescoping sections each connected to the radially projecting rails. The telescoping sections can include a magnetic back panel, one or more wheels positioned to engage an inner surface of a body of a tubular during inspection, and signal propagating and receiving modules carried by the magnetic back panel. Each module can include a magnet and different types of EMAT inspection transducer coil arrangements connected to the magnet. The different types of EMAT inspection transducer coil arrangements provide for the generation of NBSH, SW, and SV waves.

  • Publication number: 20150294245
    Abstract: The invention comprises management of integration with interfacing applications, with emphasis on configurable database connectivity, logic manipulation of data, error checking with correction capability, with or without conditional criteria through a Graphical User Interface. The data can further be configured to be transported directly or through user-controlled means that allows manual modifications. The system mines the original and modified data with timestamp, history and audit trail that can generate audit-related information any time in the future. It further provides a hierarchical roll up and breakdown capability of managing reserves assets. Approval, Action Item, document attaching, notification and instant messaging functions can be linked to the integral functions. Status, history, audit trail, reports and statistics are tracked, maintained and linked to each element of the data and its related function, and this information is producible in any statistical, graphical or textual format.

  • Patent number: 8738414
    Abstract: The invention comprises management of programs and mega-programs with emphasis on project level and above in a hierarchy that enables aggregation of information navigating up, and breakdown of details navigating down the hierarchy. It provides the flexibility of combining real-time management of budget with multiple editions, on call, asset tracking and capacity management of people and non-people resources within the same structure, vendor management, and real-time cross-program interlinking of dependencies and business considerations. The invention enables invocation of each function at every node in the hierarchy and localizes the related information at the invoking source. The functions encompass management of action items, status reports, approvals, meetings/decision making, issues, risks, change management and attachments with built in workflows that enable interactive collaboration and action triggering within the system and across external systems through condition and threshold setting.

  • Publication number: 20100277188
    Abstract: Systems, methods and program products of instructions stored on a computer readable medium related to a tether free piggable inspection tool capable of detecting holidays and able to read and store non-conductive internal coating thickness values in very long conductive pipes, along with distance values for further off-line analysis, are provided. The inspection tool includes a plurality of thickness probes, a data storage unit, a control unit, a plurality of navigation wheels and a holiday detector that uses an electrical conductive medium, such as a gas or fluid, as the ground connection. A closed loop configuration is adopted allowing the system to autocorrect itself for different coating thicknesses along the pipe.

  • Patent number: 5430871
    Abstract: In a novel method of dynamically adding or removing active logs in a DB2 subsystem without the necessity of cycling DB2, a set of control blocks emulating certain DB2 control blocks is constructed. In adding an active log, a call to a DB2 module is made to allocate the new active log data set and create a new LDSD control block for the new active log data set. The NEW and REUSABLE status flags are set in the new LDSD control block, initialization of the new LDSD control block is completed, and the new LDSD control block is added to the LDSD chain off the LMB. The BSDS record(s) and the cached portions of the BSDS information are updated to reflect the addition of the new active log. In removing an active log, the LDSD of the active log is removed from the LDSD chain and an attempt is made to deallocate the active log data set via a call to a DB2 module.
