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

In this paper we develop a model for the computation of electromagnetic fields in anomalous regions of ferromagnetic cylinders. The role of electric and magnetic current densities as sources for these fields is explicitly presented. The starting point for the development is the computation of a three-dimensional Green’s function for the cylinder, from which the appropriate integral relations between the field and its sources can be derived. The rigorous calculation of the anomalous current source within the anomalous region requires the solution of an integral equation that has the Green’s function as its kernel. We do not carry out this calculation, but approximate the anomalous current by the applied field due to the exciting coil (which, for our examples is an infinite solenoid that is coaxial to the cylinder). Once the field within the anomalies is determined, the field external to the wall of the tube may be computed, and this provides the signal that is sensed by a coil, or other means.
