Abstract

Eddy current inspection methods are used extensively in industry for the nondestructive testing of a wide variety of materials and product applications. The general theory of eddy current inspection is described. Equations defining the depth of penetration are derived from Maxwell's equations. Signal analysis methods are described using coil impedance diagrams. The impedance diagrams for a number of inspection applications are presented. A discussion of the techniques for theoretical calculation of the impedance of a coil is described. Typical coil configurations and instrumentation techniques are discussed.
