Description

The Finite Element Method for the computation of eddy current fields is presented. The method is described for geometries with a one component eddy current field. The use of the method for the calculation of the impedance of eddy current sensors in the vicinity of defects is shown. An example is given of the method applied to a C-magnet type sensor positioned over a crack in a plane conducting material.
