Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

In non-destructive testing, it is possible to detect flaws in various structures, by determining how the flaw affects the eddy currents and hence magnetic field related measurements. The eddy current calculation and the resulting field can be determined in 2D or RS models by OERSTED and in 3D models by FARADAY .

Alternatively, NDT may also use other electric or magnetic properties. For suggested simulation software, see the table below.
