The use of polyethylene (PE) plastic pipes for transporting gas and water has increased over the last few decades. The quality assessment and overall safety of the PE pipe networks have been of high priority for the distribution companies. The existing technology is somewhat complicated to use quickly and effectively by less experienced personnel. The proposed research study goal is to revise and evaluate the newest technological solutions for joint testing and propose a methodology that can address industry needs. The investigation will be focused on three areas involving ultrasound technology development, mechanical testing and an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for classification. It is believed that the interdisciplinary approach to the problem and proposed methods will result in an expected outcome and will create a long-term positive impact on the industry.
