Abstract
The authors have devised a new surface eddy current probe that provides phase information on surface flaw depth. The flaw signal phase hardly changes by the length and width of flaws, although the signal amplitude changes a great deal. The probe is also lift-off noise free and self-nulling. The authors believe that the probe makes eddy current testing more quantitative and reliable in flaw depth evaluation than the conventional probes.
INTRODUCTION
Knowledge of the depth of surface flaws is significant because material breakdowns are usually directly connected to the depth rather than their length and width. So eddy current testing has always been required to be more quantitative and reliable in evaluating depth of surface flaws.
The signal of eddy current testing by conventional probe often changes much due to the probe lift-off from the test material. Since the large lift-off noise changes signal phase much, the signal phase can hardly be used to evaluate flaws. As a result, most eddy current testing by surface probes usually uses only the amplitude of
