Abstract

In previous papers, a technique utilizing a remote magnetostrictive transducer has been proposed for in-situ measurements of specimens in research reactors. The work presented in this paper examines efforts to model and characterize the technique's ability to detect defects in rectangular bar specimens. A finite element model was used to simulate waveforms recorded in the remote monitoring setup. Since defect detection is of interest, the accuracy of predicted signal amplitudes must be considered and compared to experiments.
