There are two principles of the thickness measurement by electromagnetic ultrasonics: One is based on Lorentz force, which is suitable for conductor materials, and the other is based on magnetostrictive force, which is suitable for ferromagnetic conductive materials. In the process of thickness measurement, the ferromagnetic conductive materials will be affected by two different forces.
