Description

The ability to quickly detect flaws in thin aluminum alloy sheets is of critical importance to the commercial airline fleets. Current eddy-current methods, although very effective at exposing flawed regions, can be very time consuming when applied to airframe structures. The need for a fast, effective means of detecting critical flaws needs to be met. The purpose of this paper is to present preliminary results describing some capabilities of a new instrument, The Magneto-Optic/Eddy Current Imager, as an NDE tool for use in the Airframe Structural Integrity Program.
