Abstract:

An eddy current test system was developed utilizing commercially available instruments as integral components. Emphasis was placed upon the development of a versatile system which is capable of solving numerous specific inspection problems. Coil design studies resulted in the development of alterable coil forms and a versatile eddy current test probe. The test system, employing both encircling and probe coils, was applied to various nonferromagnetic materials such as aluminum, brass, copper, magnesium, and titanium with satisfactory results.
