In this paper a benchmark definition is proposed for the qualification of the
performance of different kind of eddy current testing (ECT) probes. The benchmark
problem is basically defined by the description of several experiments. The solution
of the proposed benchmark problem is thought to be a free format presentation that
discusses the results of the defined benchmark experiments. The benchmark
experiments are designed to give information on the sensitivity, application
frequency range, lift-off noise, tilting noise, etc. of the tested ECT probe.
At the end of the paper a preliminary example is presented for the solution of
some parts of the proposed benchmark problem.
