Description

In this paper we report the results of an experimental verification of our inversion algorithm in [1,2] for the reconstruction of flaws within tube walls. The intent of the algorithm is to improve the quantification of flaws by determining their shape as well as size. This is done by “imaging” the flaw on a spatial grid by computing the values of electrical conductivities that are to be assigned to each cell or pixel of the grid. This will give us the ability to obtain much more information about the nature of the flaw when compared with current methods.
