Description
Electromagnetic fields in uniaxial conductors have been studied in order to examine the induced current distributions excited by external alternating current sources. The problem is motivated by the need to evaluate eddy current testing techniques for the inspection of composites such as graphite-epoxy or boron-epoxy. In particular it is important to understand how eddy currents behave in anisotropic materials, especially uniaxial conductors in which the conductivity in the axial direction may be several hundred times greater than the transverse conductivity [1].
