The two-dimensional problem of a long crack in a non-magnetic, half-space conductor lying perpendicular to the flow of eddy-currents induced by a one-dimensional external current sheet is studied in the context of eddy-current non-destructive evaluation. Impedance changes due to closed, surface-breaking cracks and deep, subsurface cracks are calculated. The Wiener-Hopf technique is used to obtain an approximate solution for the magnetic field scattered by a subsurface crack and hence the impedance change. The solution is accurate to within 5% for cracks whose edges lie more than one electromagnetic skin depth (delta) below the conductor surface. For the surface-...
