Abstract : The relative merits of many commercially available eddy current inspection systems, particularly as applied to the inspection of aircraft structure, are presented. The capabilities of these eddy current instruments for nondestructive inspection applications are demonstrated by presenting the test results obtained from inspecting a selected range of test samples. In addition, the advantages and capabilities of each eddy current system are discussed. For ready reference the operating characteristics, apparent advantages and disadvantages, and approximate cost of each instrument are presented in tabular form. (Author)
