Paper Abstract

Nondestructive flaw testing of rails in track by induction methods is described and compared with ultrasonic methods. Relative strengths and weaknesses of induction testing are listed. Results taken from concurrent induction and ultrasonic testing are given which demonstrate the complementary nature of the two methods.
