Abstract

Non-destructive evaluation of structures such as ships and large oil tanks can be rapidly carried out using robots employing magnetic adhesion. This eliminates the need for the use of laborious suction systems, usually employed in climbing robots. However, since the operation of the robot is very much dependent on the speed at which the robot can move before the adhesion is lost, there is a need for determining limits at which magnetic force becomes ineffective. Finite element models and dynamic solution of magnetically supported robots have been presented in order to determine the speed limits at which they can operate.
