Abstract:The 3D finite element modelling of thin cracks in eddy current testing is studied using two dual formulations a-ψ and t-φ. Boundary conditions are employed on the surface of the crack in order to comply with the right behaviour of the electromagnetic fields. The aim of this paper is to show that the accuracy of these formulations is strongly conditioned by the finite element crack mesh density and the management of the Degrees Of Freedom (DOF) on the crack.
