at the crack face, because these are not defined. Instead, the boundary conditions at an arbitrary frequency (Eqs. 78 and 79) are imposed on p . In finding a solution using the moment technique using N equations for N unknowns, a reduction in the unknowns needed to approximate p can be made because the prior knowledge derived from Eqs. 78 and 79 restricts its behavior at the perimeter of the crack. This technique releases some degrees of freedom that can be used to represent ψ ( r ± ) as a solution of the laplace equation on the crack face. By management of the unknown coefficients in this way, a solution can be found that agrees with experiment. 108 91 Modeling of Electromagnetic Testing F IGURE 19.

Thin Penetration Regime As Auld has shown, a suitable boundary condition for formulating a well defined laplace problem on S 0 in the thin penetration regime can be derived from the magnetic field at the crack mouth. The transverse magnetic component of the magnetic field in the Y direction can be written: (99) where ψ (c) is the perturbed potential (volt) due to the crack. As it stands, Eq. 99 cannot be used immediately as a boundary condition because the perturbed field at the mouth is not known in advance . Auld got around this problem by neglecting the perturbation of the magnetic field at the crack mouth, a reasonable approximation because it can be small for nonferromagnetic materials. Taking the field perturbation into account increases the complexity of the problem 107 but improves the accuracy of the results for nonferrous alloys and gives results valid for ferromagnetic materials. 109 Results of impedance predictions 110 and measurements for a semielliptical artificial crack are shown in Fig. 19. The experimental data are taken from a series of measurements made at 16 frequencies. 76 For a comparison with thin penetration theory, results at the highest frequency (50 kHz) are shown. Calculations were performed with conformal mapping. 110 At this frequency, the depth of the simulated crack, 8.61 mm (0.339 in.), is more than 18 times the standard depth of penetration, 0.47 mm (0.019 in.). Note that the theory underpredicts the resistive component by about 10 percent.

    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.
