Characterization of Steel Microstructures by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise Technique

Conference paper
Part of the RILEM Bookseries book series (RILEM, volume 6)


Optimization and control of the microstructure is vital for improving performance and service life of the steel components. Development of non-destructive techniques for microstructure characterization has been a challenging task for many years. Magnetic Barkhausen Noise method is a non-destructive evaluation technique with high potential for characterization of steels. This paper summarizes the related studies performed at METU.
