Inspection reliability of a Nortec-30 Eddyscan system

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report presents the results of an inspection around fastener holes in simulated lap splice specimens using a Nortec-30 Eddyscan inspection system. The inspector performing the tests had no prior knowledge of the extent or location of cracks in the specimens examined. The results of the inspection are presented in terms of various probability of detection curve models and are compared to various other eddy current inspections performed on the same set of test specimens. Results indicate that the system is capable, with high confidence, of detecting 60 to 70 mil cracks from under countersink fasteners.
