Overview of Eddy Current Research at Saarbrücken
Is Version Of
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.
The development of an eddy current testing system is described which encloses a 4-frequency test device as well as extensive computer programs to optimize layout and adaptation to practical problems. Results obtained on the testing of welds and heat exchanger tubes are presented. The testing aim is to detect defects and to determine their type and size.
