coercive force

is the coercive force depend on the shape ? Provided two samples are made of the same material but different shape, you measure their coercive force could you end up with different results ?

Re: coercive force
In one word, YES! The lower the L/D Ratio (Length to Diameter), greater is the Coercive Force required to demagnetise the item. But shape is not the only factor. You also have to take into account such properties as heat treatment and alloying.

Re: coercive force
The coercive force depends on so many micro structural factors that is very unlikely to have the same values for two identically shaped and alloyed samples.

The coercive force, Hc, is the applied field required to demagnetize a material after saturation. It is a material property. (See for example http://www.ndt-ed.org/EducationResources/CommunityCollege/MagParticle/Physics/HysteresisLoop.htm and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coercive_force.) The magnetic H-field required to demagnetize a specific object depends on the material properties, the shape of the object, and the method of applying the field, among other things. Hc for the material and the demagnetizing force required for a specific object are related, but it is not always easy to calculate one from the other.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
