Eddy Current Exam Simulation Using Coupled Finite Element/Volume Integral or Finite Element/Boundary Element Method
The ability to model complex probes and simulate eddy current examinations is critical to our eddy current inspection system design efforts. The increasing demand for specialized probes creates the need to solve more complex problems than in the past. In this paper, we present details of an effort to improve our modeling capabilities by combining several techniques in order to provide greater flexibility in probe design. The result is a fast and efficient eddy current exam simulation capability for designing probes or probe arrays with complex geometry and material.
