Research effort to integrate an analysis module of inductive field into an eddy current NDT system to realise a hybrid technique, which is capable of automatically analysing the inductive field so as to set up the optimum parameters for the system, has not been well addressed. This paper describes the work that leads to the realization of such a hybrid technique. First, two finite element models are described. Next, an analytical algorithm based on these models is proposed. By integrating the algorithm into an eddy current NDT system, a smart hybrid technique can be realized. This is beneficial in setting up relevant parameters such as the working frequencies and the detection distance. Thus, the test precision can be improved. Taking a cylindrical inductive sensor as an example, some calculation results are provided to illustrate the analysis of the inductive field produced in an eddy current NDT system.
