eddy current inspection

A non-destructive testing (NDT) method used to detect surface and near-surface defects or irregularities in conductive materials. It relies on the principle of electromagnetic induction, where a changing magnetic field induces electrical currents (eddy currents) in the material being tested. These eddy currents interact with the material's electrical conductivity and magnetic permeability, allowing the detection of anomalies.
