This paper is concerned with an optimization method to recover crack profiles from measurement signals obtained by eddy current testing. This inversion technique uses Greedy search algorithm to find the optimum of least-square error between measurement signals and simulation data. In creating simulation data, a database called ECT database is used. This database is constructed as a set of parameters-to-output mapping data, by using hybrid FEM-BEM simulator derived from Maxwell’s equations. Numerical experimental results show the effectiveness and feasibility of this method.
