This paper deals with an inverse problem solution based on the simultaneous use of two different artificial neural networks (ANN) for the localization and the shape classification of defects. In a magnetic plate specimen including different defects, a classic 2D finite element method is used for eddy current computations. Results obtained from such calculations are used as a data base for the inverse problem solution. A brief overview of the ANN is presented, revealing drawbacks and advantages of the proposed approach as regards to the results.
