The seaView FMD application provides all that is required to conduct an underwater Flooded Member Survey.
The main screen shows the FMD sensor probe orientation, all echoes received together with a liquid level reading (if liquid is present). Each reading is accompanied with a energy level and correlation value. These values provide a quality check on each reading obtained.
A graphic representation of the underwater member is configured by the user to replicate the item being tested.
When configuring the member under test, the user enters in the diameter of the member. This diameter is used to automatically configure the FMD probe to utilise the most appropriate acoustic settings for the member under test. The ISFMD system varies the transmitted pulse length, minimum range, maximum range and various other parameters to specifically suit the member under test.
Measurements made along the underwater member are then recorded at defined points and shown visually on screen.
Upon completion of the survey, all data collected is saved and output in a Flooded Member Detection report.
