Abstract:

This report gives background information and basic characteristics of Eddy Currents. It discusses the Eddy Current Technique of inspection, which is closely related to the Eddy Sonics Technique. This paper discusses shelter panel testing which includes a description of the panels, how debonds are created, why early detection of debonds is necessary, and where these common defects are most likely found. A discussion of the more important nondestructive testing techniques is undertaken, where the basics of each technique is covered. The main part of the report covers the design of a miniaturized version of the Shelter Panel Inspector, which uses the Eddy Sonics Technique of inspection. Detailed circuits and a description of the operation are included for the miniaturized design.
