Description

As the existing commercial air fleet of the airline industry ages, the major demand on the NDE community is to develop simple, cost effective methodologies of higher detectability and reliability. To satisfy such a demand a focused R&D effort has been performed for the past several years through NASA Airframe Structural Integrity Program (NASIP). This particular program concentrates on the development of methodologies applicable to NDI of aircraft fuselage, which, being a thin metallic structure, is best suited for inspection by various electromagnetic techniques. Such is the direct motivation for the development of the self-nulling eddy current probe technology.
