Active Standard: E2775 - 11
guided wave testing systems for above ground pipeline utilizes piezoelectric and magnetostrictive transduction. The standard needs to address both transduction methods because there are a large number of both types of systems being used in the field. This technology is being widely used and industrial clients need to have a means to evaluate their potential guided wave technology vendors. This practice will be universally helpful to industry when both piezoelectric and magnetostrictive transduction is addressed in the standard.
