Abstract

The accuracy of an eddy current inspection depends in large part on the performance of the eddy current probe. Consistent performance requires identification of the eddy current probe parameters which characterize performance. These parameters could then serve as a basis for probe procurement specification. Their measurement would also provide a basis for the evaluation of probes which are currently used at inspection facilities and which may have deteriorated[1].
