Paper Abstract

The Knowledge Based Inspection System (KBIS), comprised of neural network classification of ultrasonic data and advanced ultrasonic sizing methodologies, is being developed under a Navy Manufacturing Technology Program. The intent of the KBIS program is to provide a tool with which an ultrasonic inspector can obtain enhanced information to improve the probability of correctly accepting or rejecting weld discontinuities. Ultimately, the use of KBIS should reduce the long-term cost of ownership of vessels due to elimination of detrimental discontinuities only.
