 06:12 Oct052005 Conductivity and Multiple Layers Trying to remember my physics... Given three different conductivities: sigma 1 sigma 2 sigma 3 Given same thickness for each layer of conductivity with no air gaps between layers Given each layer of conductivity is directly under the other, i.e., sigma1 on top, then sigma2 below sigma1, and so on. Is the total conductivity computed this way? 1/sigma total = 1/sigma1 + 1/sigma2 + 1/sigma3 Is this the same equation for dielectrics and capacitors in series and resistors in parallel? Thank you.

Even after you have definitely "decided" on the absolute values of the layers' component conductivities, you still have thickness effects, surface irregularity effects at the bond interfaces and the field effect of the coil used. Possibly the most convenient method of "estimating" the expected conductivity value you will get for a multilayer condition is by modelling. Some work has been done in this venue. A great article is to be found on www.NDT.net at http://www.ndt.net/article/wcndt00/papers/idn228/idn228.htm The software TEDDY that was provided for this paper is a great start on understanding the variability of results that occurs with variation in the parameters involved. The modelling programme is limited to maximum 2 layers but even then you can see that a simple addition is not the solution. in Eddy Current Testing you are using a field effect to determineconductivity. How far that field has penetrated the sample and the layer thicknesses along the way will determine the value you get. This is an indirect measurement technique. I think TEDDY was a shareware. It has a great set of parameter options including geometry of part tested, coil parameters, liftoff, sample conductivity and permeability. As you will see from the article link, impedance plane diagrams are provided.

 03:44 Oct072005 Re: Conductivity and Multiple Layers Thank you, Mr. Ginzel.I'll read this article soon. Looks promising. I may give my thoughts after I read the article. BTW, what does TEDDY mean? I hope the shareware is available! I believe the equation I gave is correct  ideally. I know that I'm assuming homogeneity, perfect contacts and perfect surfaces but essentialy the equation works. Since, conductivity and resistivity are just another way of stating Ohm's Law: the current density, J, is proportional to the applied electric field, E, by the materials conductivity, o. IOW, J=oE. I may have time to empirically prove this. Anyone else done this by experiment?

 05:27 Oct082005 Re: Conductivity and Multiple Layers Hi, I am the author of the TEDDYfreeware. This is a simple program that can be used for calculations of coil impedance in a number of important eddy current test geometries. It uses analytical modelling and relies heavily on the wellknown Dodd and Deeds models.The software is rather old now (about 5 years) and there has not been any newer version. I intend to upgrade it (whenever I find time) for two reasons: 1) To add additional features like textfile reporting. 2) To add additional geometries. Due to the resurgence of interest in analytical models for eddy current NDE, we now have rapid and accurate models for geometries involving for example ferrite core probes, edges and cracks. I would like to thank all the people that asked and tested the software. Their feedback will prove very helpful in the next version. Meanwhile, the old freeware version is available on request to theodoul@ieee.org.

  TVC awarded UKAS accreditationTVC are delighted to finally announce we have been awarded UKAS
accreditation for our calibration ... laboratory.
Laboratory accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 enables us to
conduct the Electrical Verification of Ultrasonic Flaw Detection
Equipment to BS EN 126681:2010. It has taken many months of hard
work and we want to thank our staff for all their efforts during
this massive undertaking. > High Resolution Industrial CT System for Small/Medium Size Parts InspectionThe YXLON FF35 CT computed tomography system is designed to achieve extremely precise inspection res ... ults for a wide range of applications. Available in a single or dual tube configuration, it is perfect for very small to medium size parts inspection in the automotive, electronics, aviation, and material science industries. > SITEX CPSERIESTeledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to
revolutionizing the handling and perfor ... mances of portable XRay
sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar
portable XRay generators available on the market (while
continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES
generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window,
an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes
are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness
and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small
size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change
the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a
positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment
(ROI). > Ultrasonic Flaw Detector & Thickness Gauge: SmartorSIUI’s newly launched Smartor is a combination of ultrasonic testing
and ultrasonic thickness me ... asurement.
