    We describe the application of VIC-3D..., a proprietary volumeintegral code, to the inversion of benchmark eddy-current data, and the reconstruction of semielliptical and epicyclic cracks. These are modeled as relatively thin surface-breaking slots, whose depth into the workpiece is described by...

    Analytical, finite element simulation, and experimental methods were used to investigate the lateral resolution of eddy current microscopy. It was found that the lateral resolution of eddy current imaging is ultimately limited by the probe-coil geometry and dimensions, but both the inspection...

    This paper presents an adaptive Wiener filter based technique for detection of defect locations from (noisy) bobbin coil eddy current data. First, the data is de-noised using an improved adaptive Wiener filter that significantly enhances the defect signals. Next, a statistical signal detection...

    Eddy current (EC) testing methods are widely used in a variety of applications including the inspection of steam generator tubes in nuclear power plants, aircraft parts and airframes. A key factor that affects the EC signal is lift-off. In practice, it is difficult to keep track of the actual...

    The ability of VIC-3D..., a proprietary volume-integral code, to model eddy-current probes has been significantly enhanced to include coils of virtually any shape, such as racetrack, D-shaped, and square, and oriented in virtually any direction. This allows the ability to model such well-known...

    Several key features of pulsed eddy current transient responses from probe coils have been identified and related to specific test parameter and material property changes. While many features are related to flaw size and location, most, such as maximum amplitude, are severely affected by probe...

Gradient of potential plays a major role in inducing eddy current around discontinuities in test material. The...
