Description

While various NDE techniques can be used on steels, magnetic methods, which rely on the inherent ferromagnetic properties for evaluation of a wide range of materials properties [1], from flaws to residual strain, are unique to steels. In general, the changes in magnetic properties that are observed are large and therefore easily measurable. Unlike ultrasonic methods they do not need high resolution, high speed electronics for their use. Despite these obvious advantages, magnetic methods have yet to be fully exploited compared with other NDE techniques.
