Description

With the operational air fleet aging, corrosion has come to the forefront as a serious problem. Eddy current techniques are capable of detecting how much of the aluminum airplane skin has been removed, and therefore, can detect corrosion only in its advanced stages. A detector which can detect corrosion early on is preferable, since damage can potentially be circumvented, and corrosion related failure would then be greatly reduced.
