Modeling Eddy Current Inductive Sensors in COMSOL webinar

Dr. Nirmal Paudel presented a free, one-hour webinar on Modeling Eddy Current Inductive Sensors in COMSOL Multiphysics.  An eddy current sensor is a noncontact device that utilizes electromagnetic induction to measure various parameters, such as displacement and material thickness, and to detect flaws or cracks in conductive materials.  It operates by inducing circulating currents, known as eddy currents, in a target material and then detects changes in the electromagnetic field to infer the desired information.

An eddy current system encompasses diverse elements, such as coils, conductive and magnetic materials, shields, and electronic circuit components.  Engineers and scientists can enhance the efficiency of designing and optimizing such systems by utilizing finite element analysis tools.

In this webinar, Dr. Paudel demonstrated a workflow for designing an eddy current sensor for nondestructive testing using the COMSOL Multiphysics software and its parametric sweep and optimization functionality for frequency domain simulations.

This webinar took place Thursday, January 25, 2024 and was sponsored by IEEE (the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).  Learn more here.
