Course Descriptions



Eddy Current

Credit(s): 3

This course will provide students with a basic knowledge and theory of the eddy current method. Students will learn the use of electromagnetic testing equipment making it possible to locate defects in non-ferromagnetic materials (such as aluminum and stainless steel). Students will gain a basic knowledge of electromagnetic analysis through a broad spectrum of electronic test methods and hands-on lab time involving the intersection of magnetic fields and circulatory currents. This lecture/lab course satisfies a requirement as set forth by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) curriculum.
