Non-destructive testing of materials by capacitive sensing

Composite materials have become essential materials in aerospace, renewable power generation, and other industries. The inspection of these materials has been traditionally performed using a variety of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques such as ultrasound testing (UT), infrared thermography (IRT), and radiography (RT). Electromagnetic techniques, such as Eddy current testing (ECT) and the like have been explored for specific applications such as the evaluation of the conducting material, and its inspection efficiency is limited in non-conducting material and those with low conductivity because of the difficulty to sustain eddy currents in such materials. Recently, it was demonstrated that capacitive sensing could be applied to the inspection of these materials without the disadvantages associated with the other techniques. This approach effectively depicts changes in the dielectric properties of the materials due to, for example, imperfections or internal details, by moving a set of simple electrodes on the surface of the object. An AC voltage is applied to one or more electrodes and signals are detected in others. This is a potential method for imaging the internal structure of many materials, without the need to be in contact (ie lift-off) with the surface. In the framework of this paper, the general design factors such as the geometry of electrodes, number of electrodes and their arrangement, shielding and guarding for the capacitive sensor were introduced. The Finite Element (FE) modelling was employed to model the electric field distribution from the capacitive sensor, and how it interacts with a non-conducting sample. Physical experiments …
