Reliability, Risk and Safety – Back to the Future. Ale, Papazoglou & Zio (eds), 1513-1518 Reliability estimates of piping (and other structural components) are needed e.g. in probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) studies, risk-informed ISI applications, and other structural reliability assessments. The reliability of piping components is affected b...
Article
The European Network for Inspection and Qualification (ENIQ) is a nuclear operator-driven network that works towards a harmonised European approach to reliable and effective in-service inspection (ISI). ENIQ has a Steering Committee and two task groups: a Task Group on Qualification (TGQ), which works on issues related to the qualification of ISI s...
Article
Insight Vol.52 Nr.12, 657 - 663 The use of probability of detection curves to quantify NDT reliability is common in the aeronautical industry, but relatively less so in the nuclear industry, at least in European countries. The main reason for this lies in the very nature of the components being inspected. Sample sizes of inspected flaws tend to be...

ATW International Journal for Nuclear Power Vol.55 Nr.7, 450 - 457 Between 2005 and 2009 JRC and OECD/NEA coordinated a project for benchmarking various risk-informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI) methodologies. In the project, called RISMET, various RI-ISI methodologies were applied to the same case, consisting of 4 selected piping systems at the...
Article
International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping Vol.87 Nr. 2 - 3, 111 - 116 The European methodology for qualification of non-destructive testing is a well-established approach adopted by nuclear utilities in many European countries. According to this methodology, qualification is based on a combination of technical justification and practical...
Article
The European Network for Inspection and Qualification (ENIQ) is a utility-driven network that works towards a harmonised European approach on reliable and effective in-service inspection (ISI), primarily in the nuclear power industry. The ENIQ has two task groups: a Task Group on Qualification (TGQ), which works on issues related to the qualificati...
Article
A growing need exists for a quantitative measure of inspection effectiveness as an input to quantitative risk-informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI). A Probability of Defection (POD) curve could provide a suitable metric, but there can be significant problems associated with generating realistic POD curves by practical trials. The ENIQ inspection...
Conference Paper
The European Network for Inspection Qualification (ENIQ) was established in 1992 in response to increasing recognition of the importance of qualification of non-destructive inspection systems used in in-service inspection programmes for nuclear power plants. Driven by European Nuclear utilities and managed by the European Commission Joint Research...
Article
International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping Vol.83 Nr. 9, 654 - 662 Non-destructive inspections are performed to give confidence of the non-existence of flaws exceeding a certain safe limit in the inspected structural component. The principal uncertainties related to these inspections are the probability of not detecting an existing flaw l...
Article
The European methodology for qualification of non-destructive testing has been adopted as the basis of inspection qualifications for nuclear utilities in many European countries. According to this methodology, the inspection qualification is based on a combination of technical justification and practical trials. The methodology is qualitative in na...
Article
Full-text available
The potential drop technique is a robust method to provide continuous in situ crack growth monitoring of real power-plant components. For a correct assessment of the crack depth, accurate calibration curves for the geometry at hand are required. The problem entails determining the electrical potential field in a body usually characterised by a comp...
Article
Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Management The European Network for Inspection and Qualification (ENIQ) is a utility driven network working towards a harmonized European approach on reliable and effective in-service inspection (ISI). More specifically ENIQ works on qualification of ISI syste...

EUR 22675 EN The European methodology for qualification of non-destructive testing has been adopted as the basis of inspection qualification for nuclear utilities in many European countries. The inspection qualification is based on a combination of technical justification and practical trials. The methodology is qualitative in nature, and it does n...
Article
EUR 21902 EN The report discusses the link between risk-informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI) and assumptions made concerning the probability of flaw detection. The purpose is to investigate the reasonable and practical requirements that should be set for assumptions about the accuracy of probability of detection (POD) curves from a RI-ISI point...
Article
20th International Conference on Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology. SMiRT 20. Book of abstracts. Vol. 2. Vuori, Seppo; Rintamaa, Rauno (eds.). VTT Symposium 257, 302 - 303
Article
ENIQ report 36 EUR 23928 EN The report is the outcome of a project to investigate approaches to quantifying the confidence associated with inspection qualification. Two methods for quantifying the outcome from inspection qualification are described. The first method is a relatively simple process based on direct expert judgement. The second method...
