Representative MWM formats: (a) single sensing MWM sensor (D – drive, S – sense), (b) deep-penetration MWM-Array; and (c) high-resolution MWM-Array with multiple sensing elements for property imaging

Measurement grids: (a) schematic of measurement grid generation process; (b) and (c) representative measurement grids relating the magnitude and phase of the sensor terminal transimpedance to the lift-off and magnetic permeability, e.g., for carbon and alloy steels, or lift-off and electrical conductivity, e.g., for superalloys, respectively

Correlation between MWM measured permeability and maximum tensile stresses in the loading sequences
Grahic Jump Location
MWM-Array generated normalized permeability images for one-half of a double-notched, low-alloy 4340 steel specimen failed in a tensile test. The images illustrate the ability to obtain distribution of residual stresses due to correlation between permeability and stresses. Figures (e) and (f) are photographs of the scanned area of the specimen. Images (a) and (b) were obtained with the MWM-Array operating at 1 MHz, while images (c) and (d) were obtained at 158 kHz. In (a) and (c), the primary winding of the MWM-Array was oriented parallel to the loading axis, while in (b) and (d), it was oriented perpendicular to the loading axis. The orientation of the MWM-Array relative to the specimen is schematically shown on the left.
