In this paper a method used for the calculation of the signal picked up by a fluxset type eddy current testing (ECT) probe is discussed. The fluxset type ECT probe is made of a pancake type exciting coil and a fluxset sensor. The effect of the presence of the ferromagnetic core of the fluxset sensor on the eddy current field is studied by using two-dimensional finite element calculations. On the basis of this study it is concluded that the crack-probe interaction can be calculated by neglecting the presence of the ferromagnetic core. After the numerical solution of a boundary integral equation, the spatial Fourier transform of the magnetic field perturbation caused by the presence of a crack in the otherwise homogeneous conducting plate specimen is evaluated analytically. Based on this analytical expression, a fast method is used for the calculation of the signal picked up by the fluxset probe. The calculated results are compared with experimental ones.
