Motivation & Project Approach

 

Motivation


  • The performance/life of such cables in coastal areas is not known

  • M/s KE is interested in cables degradation rate assessment w.r.t the environmental and mechanical loading conditions

Project Approach


  • Degradation rates, in turn, RUL (Remaining Useful Life) knowledge will enable M/s KE to timely plan repair/replacement

  • Appropriate historical non-destructive testing (NDT) & environmental data will be acquired

  • Algorithm development to compute degradation rates of the ABC

  • A user friendly GUI development to present RUL information to M/s KE managers
