Description

In eddy current inspection the ability to detect small defects depends on the sensitivity of the system and on the relative sizes of the probe and the defect. To detect defects on the opposite surface the probe radius should be at least as great as the thickness of the material. This limits the sensitivity to small defects that can be achieved by decreasing the probe size. Assuming the instrumentation is a given, further sensitivity can be achieved by improving the sensitivity of the probe itself.
