A significant amount of work concerns models of coils

This preview shows page 10 - 12 out of 66 pages.

A significant amount of work concerns models of coils that have shapes other than the classical cylindrical coil or positions that destroy the axisymmetry. A problem of great interest is the evaluation of the three-dimensional electromagnetic field for a coil with an arbitrary shape and orientation above a conducting half space. 70 Electromagnetic Testing F IGURE 5.

Weaver 32 presented a general theory of electromagnetic induction in a conducting half space by an external magnetic source using the electric and magnetic hertz vectors whereas Hannakam 33 provided solutions for a filamentary coil using the similar second order vector potential formulation. Based on the latter formulation, Kriezis 34 evaluated the eddy current density induced in a conducting half space by a filamentary coil whose axis is parallel to the surface. Other researchers like Beissner 35 and Bowler 36 have favored Green’s dyadic functions in solving the problem. Bowler was able to present analytical expressions for the eddy current density of a vertically oriented cylindrical coil over a conducting half space, thus extending the results of Kriezis to an eddy current probe coil of finite cross section. Beissner 37 and Tsaknakis 38 presented formulas for the eddy current distribution from cylindrically symmetric sources inclined at an arbitrary angle with respect to the surface normal. The general solution for a nonsymmetric source is in the form of a two-dimensional fourier integral. Numerical computations for the nonsymmetric case are therefore more demanding than those needed to evaluate fields from Dodd and Deeds formulas, where the integrals are one-dimensional. A semianalytical model was also presented by Juillard 39 for the same problem where the coil is divided in a number of elements called point current sources. The problem is solved for each point current source and superposition is applied to compute the electromagnetic field from the whole coil. Another technique for computing the magnetic field, based on the fourier transform, was presented by Panas 40 and Sadeghi, 41 who solved the problem of an elliptical coil and a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
