Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the productivity & reliability of magnetic particle testing used for surface inspection in Hong Kong construction industry. A set of fillet welds with artifacts in different orientation is prepared with a round robin test with several set of qualified operators in determining the productivity and probability of detection of test results. Eddy current test were also used to determine the equivalent productivity and probability of detection of discontinuities in various structural welds made predominantly from carbon steel for structural welds employed in the Hong Kong Construction Industry. The study aims to set new criteria for testing & inspection practices in Hong Kong to raise productivity & reliability of Inspection techniques.
