Bridge the gap of theoretical and experimental eddy current NDT

Lead Research Organisation: Newcastle University
Department Name: Electrical, Electronic & Computer Eng

Abstract

Huddersfield has an excellent research record on eddy current NDT&E, particularly pulsed eddy current and signal processing using experimental methods. Dr Theodoulidis has very good research records on analytical eddy current models and notable publication. Currently, there are gaps between theoretical and experimental eddy current NDT (ECT). For examples, analytical models of ECT concentrate on computation on coil impedance variation vs defects; in contrast, most experimental study of ECT investigates the magnetic field distribution vs defects. Many inverse models are investigated by experiments or numerical models, which is very costly. The proposed Visiting Fellowship is to enable Dr Theodoulidis (University of West Macedonia) to work in the Systems Engineering Research Group led by Professor Tian at Huddersfield. We propose to integrate the Truncated Region Eigenfunction Expansion (TREE) techniques into a wide range of our existing numerical electromagnetic simulation experimental studies on pulsed eddy current, micro magnetic sensor array, stress mapping and applications on stirring friction welds and detection of fatigue cracks in complex, multilayered structure.

Results and Impact The 20th International Workshop on Electromagnetic NonDestructive Evaluation, ENDE2015, was successfully held at the Katahira Sakura Hall, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, 21-23, September.
A keynote lecture by Professor Gerd Dobmann titled 'Global trend of ENDE studies' was held on 22nd to review the development of studies of electromagnetic non-destructive evaluations in the last couple of decades. The recent trends of the studies were then discussed in a subsequent panel session titled 'ET&ENDE - Where we are and where we want to go?' where three distinguished professors, Professor Antonello Tamburrino, Professor Gui Yui Tian, and Professor Lalita Udpa, were invited as panelists.
