Eddy Current Scan Simulation with Coupled FEM/BEM
Beissner, R. Bruce
The finite element method (FEM), boundary element method (BEM), and volume integral method (VIM) are well-known numerical techniques that have been succėssfully applied to electromagnetic calculations. At Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), we routinely use these calculations to design eddy current probes. In our applications, the desired information is the impedance of a probe as it is scanned across a structure containing a flaw.
