Description

Recently, much effort has been focused on the development of arrays for the non destructive testing (NDT) of metal structures in offshore, nuclear and aerospace industry, eg: [1–2]. The main feature of these arrays is electronic scanning which reduces (or eliminates) mechanical noise and makes rapid scan of large areas possible. Some arrays can also provide opportunity for direct signal processing of data. This paper is concerned with a linear array using the non-uniform field ac field measurement (ACFM) technique which is also known as the surface magnetic field measurement (SMFM) method [3].
