Eddy Current Response to Three-Dimensional Flaws by the Boundary Element Method
Hwang, J. H.
In planning an inspection procedure, or in designing parts with flaw detectability as a design goal, it is essential that the engineer have available some form of model for estimating the probability of flaw detection. In the past this need has been met, with varying degrees of success, by relying on experience in the inspection of similar parts, sometimes supplemented by experimental testing. With the rapid advances in computer technology in recent years, it is now feasible to consider replacing, or at least enhancing, such practices with predictions based on numerical simulation of the flaw detection process .
