What options are available to detect section loss and pipe blockage, preferably without paint removal?

DSIAC subject matter experts (SMEs) at TRI-Austin conducted literature searches of the DTIC R&E database and open sources that uncovered articles regarding multiple guided wave ultrasonic methods, including some that apply the approach to more complex pipework. A bibliography of the related documents, as well as a couple of SME contacts, were compiled into a report and delivered to the inquirer.
