Abstract: Wall-thinned defects, which are attributable to acceleration of corrosion that is occurred by fluid flow in the inner pipe, appear in various structures of the secondary system in nuclear power plants (NPPs), playing a role as a major factor to degrade integrity of pipes. It is required to manage wall-thinned defects not only when the NPP is under maintenance but also when the NPP is in normal operation. To this end, this paper developed a test technique to manage such wall-thinned defects based on temperature difference on surface of hot pipe with use of infrared thermography and cooling device. Finite element analysis (FEA) was conducted to examine tendency of and test conditions for cooling experiment. Based on the FEA results, equipment was configured before the cooling experiment was conducted. Then, infrared camera was used to detect defects in the inner pipe of the pipe specimen that had artificially induced defects. The infrared thermography developed in this study is expected to help resolve issues related to limitations on the nondestructive inspection that is currently conducted for NPP’s secondary system and expected to be very useful on the NPP site.
