Abstract

Eddy Current Techniques (ECT) for Non-Destructive Testing and Evaluation (NDT/NDE) of conducting materials is one of the most application-oriented field of research within electromagnetism. In this work, a novel approach is proposed in order to characterize defects on metallic plates in terms of their depth and shape, starting from a set of experimental measurements. The problem is solved by means of a hybrid classification system based on Computation with Words (CWs) and Fuzzy Entropy (FE). They extract information about the specimen under test from the measurements. Main advantages of proposed approach are the introduction of CWs as well as the usage of the FE based minimization module, in order to improve flaw characterization by a low computational complexity system.
