All over the world, pressure vessels are being pressed into service beyond their design lifetimes. Advances in machine learning can lead to the deployment of increasingly reliable non-destructive testing (NDT) to inspect pressure vessels. The NOMAD study, a four-year research project to investigate NDT of reactor pressure vessels, is nearing its conclusion this month.

Pressure vessels are any structures that contain fluids at pressures different from the ambient and can include soda bottles, car t
