EE 5880: Eddy Current Nondestructive Evaluation

(Cross-listed with MSE 5880).
Credits: 3. Contact Hours: Lecture 3.

Electromagnetic fields of various eddy current probes. Probe field interaction with conductors, crack and other material defects. Ferromagnetic materials. Layered conductors. Elementary inversion of probe signals to characterize defects. Special techniques including remote-field, transient, potential drop nondestructive evaluation and the use of Hall sensors. Practical assignments using a 'virtual' eddy current instrument will demonstrate key concepts. Offered odd-numbered years. (Typically Offered: Fall)
