Pulsed Multifrequency Excitation and Spectrogram Eddy Current Testing (PMFES-ECT) for Nondestructive Evaluation of Conducting Materials

Published: 15 September 2021
 by  MDPI

Abstract: This paper presents a new method for nondestructive testing—a pulsed multifrequency excitation and spectrogram eddy current testing (PMFES-ECT), which is an extension of the multifrequency excitation and spectrogram eddy current testing. The new method uses excitation in the form of pulses repeated at a specified time, containing several periods of a waveform consisting of the sum of sinusoids with a selected frequency, amplitude and phase. This solution allows the maintenance of the advantages of multifrequency excitation and, at the same time, generates high energy pulses similar to those used in pulse eddy current testing (PECT). The effectiveness of the new method was confirmed by numerical simulations and the measurement of thin Inconel plates, consisting of notches manufactured by the electric-discharge method.
