Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

Small ferromagnetic resonators have been shown to provide effective electromagnetic detectors for surface flaws in magnetic and nonmagnetic metals. As such a resonator is moved along 'the surface of a test piece it experiences a frequency shift when it passes over a flaw. lwo detection mechanisms are present: (1) an eddy current effect (2) a perturbation of the dc magnetic bias field used to tune the resonator. Results are given for experiments performed on machined slots in aluminum, titanium and steel and on tightly closed fatigue cracks in titanium. Results are also presented for some measurements on titanium aircraft fasteners.
