The relation between the output of the fluxset sensor and the magnetic field is established by the numerical and experimental investigation of an ECT set‐up. A fast calculation method has been developed for obtaining the magnetic field generated by the interaction of the probe and the crack in a finite plate by superimposing the results obtained by the analysis of a finite plate without a crack and an infinite plate with a crack. The calculations are made by FEM and boundary integral methods, respectively. The relationship between the measured output and the magnetic field is obtained by calculating the calibration factors giving the best fit of the two sets of data. Based on the results, a numerical tool is developed for the quantitative evaluation of magnetic field sensors applied to the measurement of spatially inhomogeneous fields.
