Composite Material Characterization using Eddy Current by 3D FEM Associated with Iterative Technique
Main Article Content
In this paper, an iterative technique, employing the T formulation associated with the finite element method, based on Maxwell's equations and the Biot-savart law, is used for analyzing the density of eddy currents in composite carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials. For this purpose, a code has been developed for solving an electromagnetic 3D non-destructive evaluation problem. This latter permits the characterization of this CFRP and determinate of fibers orientation using the impedance variation which is implanted in polar diagram. Firstly, the obtained results are compared with those of the analytical model. This comparison reveals a high concordance which proves the validity of the proposed method. Secondly, three different applications are shown for illustrating the characterization of unidirectional, bidirectional and multidirectional piece using a rectangular coil plotted in normalized impedance diagram.
