Description

Eddy current testing is used extensively by the Air Force for nondestructive inspection of many aircraft structural components. Although the reliability and consistency of inspections depends to a large extent on the characteristics of the eddy current probes used, no adequate specifications or certification methods presently exist for assuring probe performance. Because of the variability in probe performance, a need exists for establishing a means to control probe performance characteristics which will eventually lead to improved test results.
