Abstract

Electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMATs) can transmit and detect ultrasonic waves in a conductive specimen out of any contact with it. This process can be given theoretical modeling and formulation based on elastodynamics and electromagnetics. It suggests a possibility of quantitative nondestructive evaluation using EMATs. This research deals with a numerical method of flaw identification from a receiver signal obtained by EMATs. Experimental results of the receiver signals agree well with numerical ones, which verified the mathematical model of the inspection process. Flaw identification is formulated as a problem of parameter optimization. To avoid being trapped in a local optimum, initial parameters were successfully evaluated from the height and the time period of peaks in the receiver signals. Flaw parameters were identified from the receiver signals obtained by numerical simulations and experiments, which verified the method of flaw identification presented here.
